Basse de ... French
Dessus de ... French

These prefixes are used in French organs to indicate stops which play only in the bass (Bass de ...) or treble (Dessus de ...). Often a single stop will be split in this manner, e.g. Basse de Bombarde and Dessus de Bombarde.

See also Basse de Chormorne, Basse de Viole.
