Viola Minor English?

Listed only by Irwin, who says:

A String of 8' on the manuals, with a soft an sympathetic tone of less brightness than the Viola itself. It may be synonymous with the Echo Viola in some cases. This name may stand in contrast to a louder Viola in the same division, as in the String Organ. The name Viola may be used for a rank of soft Viola pipes in some cases.
See Viola Major.
