    What is an organ stop?

    Hi everyone!

    I'm portuguese and an organ estudant, so i don't know some words and expressions related to music in other languages like "organ stops". So what's the meaning of this expression?

    Hello,

    An organ stop is the mechanism that opens and closes the slider under a rank of pipes(the rank being the row of pipes that one wants to use during the performance of an organ composition).

    Hope this helps,

    Giovanni
