This stop is mentioned only by Bedos, who says: Incidentally, when more than one stop knob is labelled Grosse Fourniture, it indicates simply the Fourniture. The ranks have been divided between two sliders to avoid the excessive width of a single slider for four, five, six, or seven ranks. He includes the stop in two of his large sample specifications. In both cases it appears on the Grand Orgue with III ranks, along with a Fourniture of IV ranks. Could both these stops comprise a single VII-rank mixture? He does not say.
Osiris contains sixteen examples from II to VIII ranks, the earliest of which are listed here.
