Piccolo d'Amore Italian|
Audsley lists this stop with the following description:
The true Octave of the Flauto d'Amore, 4 ft. It is a softly-voiced flute-toned stop of 2 ft. pitch, properly formed of half-covered wood pipes of small scale, from CC to C2, and thence to top note in small-scale open metal pipes, preferably of Spitzflöte form.
Irwin also lists it, saying:
A soft, half-covered Flute of 2' manual pitch, which is sometimes given the structure of a Flûte d'Amour: small-scale rectangular wooden pipes with narrow brass rohrs in their stoppers. Its refined and gentle tone is useful in the Choir Organ, perhaps the Echo.
Osiris contains only a single example:
Piccolo d'Amore 2', Echo; St. Matthew's Lutheran Church, Hanover, Pennsylvania, USA; Austin 1925.
