Aeoline Céleste English|
Listed only by Irwin, who says:
An undulating stop of 8' on the manuals, formed from two ranks of Aeoline pipes, normal-sharp in many examples. It is almost too soft to be in the String Organ, except in a building where it can be heard. Its shimmering, delicate sound may be heard from the Choir, the off-pitch rank being removable. It is background and accompaniment tone, not making an effective sound unless chorded, perhaps with the intramanual 4' coupler.See céleste, Echo Céleste.
There are eight single-rank examples in Osiris, and one three-rank example that is also the earliest known example:
Aeoline Celeste III 8, Echo I; Cadet Chapel, United States Military Academy, West Point, NY, USA; Moller.
