|Viola Céleste English?|
A celeste made from one or more Viola ranks. Irwin describes it as follows:
An undulating stop of mild String tone, at 8' on the manuals, and made from two ranks of Viola pipes, perhaps of different scale for a variety of effect. The off-pitch rank may be smaller and brighter to make the céleste beat a little more in the higher overtones. Or one rank may be of wood and one of metal, or one of tin and one of spotted metal. This is a milder céleste than most String célestes and is very suitable for accompaniment and background playing.Not to be confused with Viole Céleste.
See the Sound Files appendix for general information.
