Hoorn Dutch

Mentioned only by Williams, who says: �Horn (Ger.), Hoorn (Dutch) and Nachthorn were in the 16th cent. frequently Cornets, especially in the Netherlands and north France (St Donatus, Bruges, 1557).�

Compare with Horn.


The only known example comes from a proposal for a division which was never actually built, and that example appears to be a reed by its position in the stoplist:

Hoorn 4', Kerkorgel Voetklavier; Abbey of Premontres, Tongerlo, Belgium; Klais 1933.
