Harmonic Mixture English

A mixture mentioned only by Audsley, who says:

The largest compound harmonic-corroborating stop we have examined and know of in a modern Organ is the Harmonic Mixture, of fourteen ranks (784 pipes), in the Organ in the Edinburgh University.

He does not say whether the word �harmonic� indicates that the stop is comprised of harmonic ranks, as with the Harmonic Cornet and Harmonic Cymbal.

Examples

Harmonic Mixture (with tierce) III-V, Great; St. James' Episcopal Church, Los Angeles, California, USA; Murray Harris, Schlicker & Austin.

Harmonic Mixture VI (17 21 22 23 26 28), Fanfare; Convention Hall, Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA; Midmer-Losh 1929-32.
