Hoorn Dutch

Mentioned only by Williams, who says: Horn (Ger.), Hoorn (Dutch) and Nachthorn were in the 16th cent. frequently Cornets, especially in the Netherlands and north France (St Donatus, Bruges, 1557).

Compare with Horn.


The only known example comes from a proposal for a division which was never actually built, and that example appears to be a reed by its position in the stoplist:

Hoorn 4', Kerkorgel Voetklavier; Abbey of Premontres, Tongerlo, Belgium; Klais 1933.
