What is this?
« on: February 26, 2016, 11:17:57 AM »
I came across a name I did not know for an organ stop, Coroboe, is it a cross between Cornopean and Oboe?

Best wishes,
Barrie

Sorry, but this does appeal to my sense of humour - if we've got a Coroboe, could we also have a Clarinotto, or a Fagottinet?  (Cross between a clarinet and fagotto!)    As I said, apologies!   ;D

It's not that uncommon, although sometimes split into two words - tone a cross between an Oboe and a Cornopean.  "Oboe Horn" is occasionally found also.

I find "Fagottone" amusing for some reason....

Were you not to have apologised I would've Forgottinit and not noticed anything unusual.

"String Gamba" is another funny one, which conjures up various visions.  John Budgen (ex-Bishop & Son) referred to a Gamba which he said was a string stop only insofar as it was "cross-stitched to the back of the swell box".

My "doorbell" consists of an "oboe horn" with a 6 inch long resonator tuned at F#...  see    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozLAM8rlVA8 ;) ;) ;)

Yay! neat!  Reminds me of the late Gilbert Benham (who wrote articles in "The Organ" before I was born).  He had stop-labels on various items of furniture, etc, in his house in north London.  The toilet flush was Contra Bombarde 32'.

I have a nameplate from a not-so-reputable Irish organ builder on mine....
