Progressio Harmonica Italian?
A Mixture stop in which the ranks increase in number as the notes progress from bass to treble. It was invented by Musikdirektor F. Wilke of Neu-Ruppin, Germany as a means of reinforcing the treble. The original Progressio Harmonica started with two ranks, 1-1/3' and 1', and added a third 2' rank at tenor C. Other treble-reinforcing stops include Diskantprinzipal.Compare with Compensating Mixture.
