Kleinterz German

The literature has little to offer regarding this stop. Audsley says:

The prefix klein - small, has been employed by German organ-builders in the names of other organ-stops; we, accordingly, find the following: ... Kleinterz (1-3/5 ft.). The prefix is employed to indicate either octave pitch or small scale.

Wedgwood says only: �Klein Terz = Octave Tierce�.

See Terz.

Examples

Osiris contains only a single example:

Kleinterz 1-3/5', Oberwerk; Ulm, Münster, Germany; Walcker 1969.
