Choralflöte German

Audsley has this to say:

The term Choral has been prefixed to several loud-toned stops to indicate their special suitability for giving out the melody of a Choral. With this meaning, we meet with such stop-names as Choralprinzipal, Choralprästant, and Choralflöte.

Grove, Maclean and Williams list it as a synonym for Choralbass.
