Closed Horn English

Listed only by Maclean, with the following description:

In small organs, containing only one Reed on the Swell, it is customarily made of a compromise scale, midway in power between the Oboe and Trumpet, of which the Closed Horn is a representative type. A similar stop was formerly made by Norman & Beard under the name of Cor Oboe.
