Starkgedackt German

Starkgedeckt German (Primary)


Audsley lists this stop with the following description: A large-scaled covered stop, of 16 ft. pitch, the pipes of which are of wood, copiously blown with wind of moderate pressure, and voiced to yield a full and round tone of good mixing quality. Of this stop, Regnier says: �Grand bourdon de seize fortement embouché et donnant aux flûtes ouvertes de huit un velouté et une profondeur remarquables.� Regnier's quote translates as follows: �Large bourdon of 16' strong-toned [?] and giving to the open flutes of 8' a softness and remarkable depth.� Wedgwood also lists this stop, saying only �A Gedeckt of large scale and poweful intonation.� The German word stark means �strong�.
