Halber Cornet German?|
Mentioned only by Adlung, who says:
In the Pfarrkirche at Danzig there is a "halber Cornet 8'." Question: what does that mean? Reply: I believe it means that the stop does not extend through the entire keyboard, rather from the top down to c' or g. Mattheson expresses a similar opinion in the Appendix to Niedt's Part Two, p. 168, where he says the same thing about a "halber Zinken;" thus I conclude all the more confidently that it [i.e., the "halber Cornet 8'"] must be considered as a Zink.See also Cornet.
