Trinona Unknown


Description:

Audsley lists this stop with the following description: The name given by the builder of the Organ in the Church of St. Vincent, Breslau, to stop, of 8 ft. and 4 ft. pitch, inserted on the Second or Upper Manual. These stops are said to be of wood and of a soft viol quality of tone. The name would seem to imply the presence, in some prominence, of the fourth upper partial tone - the Seventeenth - in the voices of the stops, quite compatible with good viol-tone. Wedgwood lists it as �a sweet and soft-toned Gamba�, and cites the same example as Audsley.
