Cornettin Swedish

Williams describes this stop as follows: “II-rank, a quite common Sesquialtera stop found on Swedish organs of c. 1800 (Badelunda, 1805, O. Schwan).” Adlung, on the other hand, mentions it in his entry for the reed form of Cornet, citing examples of 2' pitch “at Merseburg and at Salzburg”.
