Fourniture Cymbalisée French

Mentioned only by Williams, who says:

Fourniture Cymbalisée at Maroilles, 1725 = Fourniture and Cymbale on one stop-lever, a fairly frequent Mixture in which all the breaks occurred perhaps twice in each octave, each rank breaking back a 5th or 4th (2' to 2-2/3', 2-2/3' to 4', etc.). The Fourniture otherwise broke only once in each octave. Purpose explained at Ste Genevièe-des-Ardents, Paris (1549): ‘pour fournir le plein jeu’.


None known other than that mentioned above.
