Cymbale Harmonique French|
Not mentioned in the literature, this stop is one of a class of mixtures reportedly developed by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll, who used the word “harmonique” in his mixtures to indicate not harmonic pipes, but a type of mixture without breaks, in which the number of ranks increases as the stop ascends. Other stops of this type include Plein-Jeu Harmonique and Fourniture Harmonique.See also Cymbale, and compare with the spurious Harmonic Cymbal.
All known examples are given below:
Cymbale Harmonique II-V, Grand Orgue; Cathedrale Notre Dame, Paris, France; Cavaillé-Coll 1868. See composition above.
Cymbale Harmonique II-V, Positif; Hyde Park Community United Methodist Church, Cincinnati, Ohio, USA; Casavant 1990.
