It could be called a "french principal" sound, and has its most distinctive spokespipes (new term coined here!) in the organs of Cavaille-Coll. Casavant Fr=E8res in Quebec also use the "montre" designation quite freely, even for pricipals NOT in the fa=E7ade.   DeserTBoB

I just completed an organ with four ranks of = Diapasons, all Kilgen, solid lead, 45 scale( medium large ) . #1 has 73 pipes at 8' pitch and makes up the facade. I revoiced this rank to be full voiced and prominant as the great Major Diapason. It plays in the Great only at 8' = pitch as I do not believe in over unification. There are 12 pipes with no way to =   play. What was I to do? Throw them out? The church owns them. So I set up = a stop on the Swell as 'Montre 4' Gt.' This way an organist can use this = stop to play a solo line on the Swell with any of the other Great stops as accompaniment. But to answer your question 'Montre' simply refers to a diapason or principal that is 'mounted' in the facade. However the term is =   sometimes used quite loosly to refer to any diapason, in the facade or = not. There is also the Cornet d' Montre that designates a mixture with at least =   one rank of third sounding pipes that are elevated well above the other = pipes so that they can project their tone freely into the listening area.

It's not just found in French Classic stoplists, but the= term has been used through Cavaill=E9-Coll and up to the present day. The ter= m comes from the verb "to show", as its polished tin pipes stand in the fa=E7ade. The sound is mild and some sources (Lebegue and Boyvin) list it alone as= a possibility for the "Jeux doux". --=20 Robert Horton - GTA, University of Kansas http://falcon.cc.ukans.edu/~gemshorn/   "A fine is a tax for doing wrong...
