Hi

You don't need to look at e-Bay for odd stop names.  There are some real funnies on real organs - including one organ where the stops are labelled in Latin!  Mis-spellings are common, especially on pre-1870 or thereabouts instruments.

Every Blessing

Tony

Hi,
well I know that Harpsichords seem to sometime have an inscription in Latin, but I didn't know that one organ had it stops names in Latin.
most interesting.
