Echo Mixture English|
Described only by Irwin, who says:
A compound manual stop made from soft Diapasons, perhaps Echo Geigens, Dulcianas, or even Echo Dulcianas, occasionally designed to resemble a Fourniture, Cornet, or some other type of multiple-rank stop.
Bonavia-Hunt also mentions it as one of the �most commonly used miniatures�.
See Mixture; compare with Soft Mixture.
Irwin gives the following examples at middle C, without any indication as to whether breaks would occur:1. (III) 4' + 2-2/3' + 2'
Echo Mixture VI, Positif; Parr Hall, Warrington, England; Cavaillé-Coll 1875.
Echo Mixture II, Swell; St Mary the Virgin, Finedon, Northamptonshire, England; Christopher Schrider 1717.
