Aeoline Céleste English

Listed only by Irwin, who says:

An undulating stop of 8' on the manuals, formed from two ranks of Aeoline pipes, normal-sharp in many examples. It is almost too soft to be in the String Organ, except in a building where it can be heard. Its shimmering, delicate sound may be heard from the Choir, the off-pitch rank being removable. It is background and accompaniment tone, not making an effective sound unless chorded, perhaps with the intramanual 4' coupler.
See céleste, Echo Céleste.

Examples

There are eight single-rank examples in Osiris, and one three-rank example that is also the earliest known example:

Aeoline Celeste III 8, Echo I; Cadet Chapel, United States Military Academy, West Point, NY, USA; Moller.
