Erzähler Céleste German

Listed only by Irwin, who says:

An undulating 8' manual stop of Foundation tone, made from two ranks of Erzähler pipes, tuned most usefully in the flat-sharp pattern of pitches, since this impairs the pitch of the other stops less in the ear of the listener.
. . .
This neutral-toned and somewhat bright stop makes a good accompaniment for either vocal or organ solo. A single 4' Erzähler rank added to this céleste increases its usefulness with the louder solo stops, since it gives more pitch-support and a little more penetration.
See Céleste.
