Nachthorngedackt German

Not described in the literature, this name appears eight times in Osiris, mainly in 20th century German organs. Six out of these eight instruments also contain Nachthorn stops, which suggests that their Nachthorns are of the open type, and the Nachthorngedackts are the stopped form of Nachthorn.
