Dolce Grand Cornet English

Mentioned only by Audsley, who says:

A Dolce Grand Cornet composed of complete, through ranks of true Dolce pipes, of small scale, would be of great value in any of the softer toned divisions or subdivisions, expressive, of the Concert-room Organ, in which its presence would tend to complete the harmonic structure.
See Cornet; compare with Grand Cornet.

Composition

Audsley gives the following example, adding that the 1-3/5' rank could be omitted �if too harsh in tone�:

4' + 2-2/3' + 2' + 1-3/5' + 1-1/3'

Examples

None known. Contributions welcome.
