Tibia Profunda Latin

Audsley and Wedgwood describe this stop as a 16' pedal Tibia Plena (an open flute). Bonavia-Hunt describes it as a large-scale bass Clarabella with leathered lips. Irwin claims that it is usually a Tibia Clausa of 16' pitch in the manuals, or 32' pitch in the pedal, and occasionally an open rank of large scale. Williams specifies 16' or 32' pitch.
