Glockenzimbel German? (Primary)

Glockenzymbel German?


Description:

Mentioned only by Irwin in a list of mixture stops, with no definition. The name probably comes from the German words glocken (�bells�), and zimbel (�cymbal�). Alastair Disley writes: �a Glockenzimbel is a Zimbel type stop with one of the three ranks tuned to a third, rather than quint or octave.�


Examples:

Glockenzimbel, 12 bells, Positiv; in Alfred Hertz Memorial Hall, University of California, Berkeley, California, USA. (The specification �12 bells�, rather than a pitch or number of ranks, implies that this example may be a variety of Zimbelstern.)
