Flûte Octaviente Harmonique French

Audsley cites Flûte Octaviante Harmoniqueit as a form of Flûte Harmonique that appears at 4' pitch in the Grand Orgue and Récit-Écho Expressif divisions of the organ in the Royal Church of Saint-Denis near Paris, constructed by Cavaillé-Coll in 1841. Osiris, however, lists those stops as Flûte Octaviante. Hopkins & Rimbault list the corrupted spelling Flûte Octaviente Harmonique, and call it a favorite of English organ builders.
