    Question Age of organ stops

    I want to ask about age of some organ stops. I'm amateur organist and I'm interesting about early organs. On my computer I was build several digital organs based on Hauptwerk 1.0.0 system. Now I have small collection of organ stops (samples in *.wav format), but I don't sure about age of some stops.

    Here this stops: Violone, Viola, Violine, Dolce, Portunal, Dolcan, Quintade. Now I want to rebuild my old small renaissance positive into large renaissance positive of 21 speaking stops and I want to include some of this stop in my new disposition. But I must know exactly about age of this stops. Is this stops renaissance, baroque of romantic? If somebody know anything, write, please.

    Hi Vimperg,

    Do you want to know the chronological age of those stops which you mentioned? The chronological age of an actual pipe doesn't necessarily determine the sound. You might want to look into different types of tuning e.g. Kirnberger III, Werckmeister, and Valotti.

    Cheers,

    Hi Vimperg,

    There is this online Encyclopedia of Organ Stops that may be of help also.
