Vox Amorosa Latin
Audsley describes this stop as a small-scaled wooden flute of 8' pitch, resembling the Flauto D'Amore, and used by Steinmeyer and other German builders. He describes its tone as “soft and pleasing”. Locher considers it a synonym used by Steinmeyer for Flauto d'Amore and Flauto Amabile. (Audsley lists those stops separately.) Irwin also lists it as a synoym for the Flauto Amabile.
The name Vox Amorosa has apparently been used for a celeste (see examples below). Compare with Amoroso.
