Harmonic Cornet English

Listed only by Irwin, who says:

A compound Foundation stop on the manuals, made harmonic for greater penetration and cleanness of timbre. Its rich tones make prominent the chief melody of the music. It is a majestic and imposing solo stop. It gives brilliance to the Diapasons of the Chorus or the loud Trumpets and Tubas.

See Cornet, Harmonic Flute.
