Bassetto Italian?

Mentioned only by Williams, who says: Bassetto in the Lower Bavarian specifications of Sponsel (1771) probably denotes an octave pedal flute 4', stopped.


All known examples are given below. Contributions welcome.

Bassetto 4', Pedale; Chiesa di San Tommaso, Firenze, Italy. Simoni(?) 1882. A light, clear Principal.


Williams[1]: Glossary: Octava.
