Harmonic Gemshorn English


Description:

This stop is mentioned by Wedgwood, who says: The Harmonic Gemshorn 2 ft. is occasionally made. One particular example at Rugby School Chapel (Bryceson) struck the author as probably the most effective Swell super-octave stop he had heard. Locher also mentions it: �in Westminster Abbey (W. Hill) there is a 2-ft. Harmonic Gemshorn.� The construction of this stop is not known, but from the name we can postulate that it is both tapered and of harmonic length.


Examples:

Harmonic Gemshorn 2', Swell; Winchester College Chapel, Winchester, England; Norman & Beard 1908.
