Hautboy Clarion English


An Oboe stop of 4' pitch. Irwin calls it an imitative stop, but then contradicts himself by saying that it can be made in the form of either the (unimitative) Oboe or the Orchestral Oboe. Audsley maintains that it is unimitative.


This stop is uncommon under any name. No examples of Hautboy Clarion or Echo Clarion are known. Contributions welcome..
