Listed only by Wedgwood, who says:
The name occurred in the specification of the former organ at Saville Cathedral, as given in Hamilton's �Catechism of the Organ� and in Hopkins' and Rimbault's treatise. It appears to have been an ordinary stop named after the town of Toulouse.
Could this �ordinary stop� have been a mixture? All the examples in Osiris are mixtures (see below); compare with Corneta Tolosana.
