Minor Principal English|
This stop is listed only by Irwin, who says:
A moderately loud, smaller-scaled Diapason of somewhat fewer than the normal train of harmonics and of either wood or metal construction, falling into one of the following three classifications:
- a second, smaller-scale Diapason 8' on any manual;
- a second, smaller-scale Octave on any manual;
- a second, smaller-scale Diapason 16' on the pedals.
Audsley mentions it only in passing, with no definition.See Major Principal, Minor Diapason and Minor Octave.
Osiris contains only a single example:
Minor Principal 8', Choir; Church of St Batholomew, Armley, England; Schulze 1866-69.
