Italian Positive Organ

AN ITALIAN POSITIVE ORGAN IN 17TH CENTURY STYLE MADE IN 1996

 

Principale                              8ft
Ottava                                     4ft
Decimaquinta                       2ft
Decimanona                         1⅓ft
Vigesimaseconda                1ft
Voce Umana from c¹           8ft
                                                           

The keyboard is transposing (a¹ = 390, 415, 440 and 465Hz). The pipes are tuned with slides.

There are two foot pedals, one to bring on all the chorus stops (Tirapieno), the other to remove them, leaving the Principale.

 

The compass is C – c³, with an octave of pedal pulldowns (C-cº).

 

The organ is based on the late 17th century positive organ from Lucca, which we restored for the late Sheila Lawrence.  It has been recorded on numerous occasions, mostly with His Majesty’s Sackbuts and Cornets on http://www.sfzmusic.co.uk/
