Cornet à Pavillon French|
Audsley lists this stop with the following description:
The name given by Cavaillé-Coll to a lingual stop, of 8 ft. pitch, inserted in the Grand-Orgue of the instrument constructed by him, in 1841, for the Royal Church of Saint-Denis [Paris, France]. The name was suggested by the form of the resonators employed, just as in the case of the Flûte à Pavillon, the pipes of which are surmounted by bells. Another example exists in the Organ in the Church of Saint Vincent de Paul, Paris [France].
Maclean describes it as “a narrow-scaled stop of Trumpet tone”, and cites the St. Denis example. That example is the only one known.See also Orchestral Cornet.
