Listed only by Irwin under the mongrel name Kleine Mixture. His entry reads:

A soft manual mixture whose function is to create a body of tone of suitable timbre for building up the Accompaniment, Echo, or Choir Organ. It may serve as an accompaniment stop on any division, even the Great. Its structure may resemble the Echo Mixture, Dulciana Cornet, or Soft Mixture. It may extend the 4' Chorus of flues as well as the unison Chorus. Echo Geigen Diapasons, Dulcianas, or any other diminutive Foundation stops may be used to compose its ranks.

Adlung mentions it briefly as a name for a Mixture with �just a few� ranks.
