And if so, why? And if so, does it make a difference? How often are they actually in tune? The funds could be better spent elsewhere, even if they went toward a fund =   for the instrument's future upkeep.

Up here in Canada (in the Toronto area), I would estimate an organ like this to be $500 to $1,000 Can.   If in the U.S. , I would reckon somewhere around $500 for a good one. = That is if there is any demand at all for one.   Regards,   Arie V.

This was not the most bizarre stop on that instrument, however, since on the Swell there was a 2 rank "Teint" comprising 1.1/7' + 16/19'. I wonder how one was expected to tune that, and must confess I don't even know what note a 16/19' ought to play even if it were in tune.   Perhaps the most wasteful stop list of this kind was the 1970 Hill, Norman & Beard organ at Holy Trinity, Holborn, London. Here in an organ of only 17 stops, the Swell division comprised:   Spitz Flute 8' Chimney Flute 4' Principal 2' II Rks. Sesquialtera 2.2/3' + 1.3/5' Septieme 1.1/7' None 8/9' III Rks. Sharp Mixture Trompette 8'   Thank goodness that symphonic organs are becoming popular once more and nothing like this is ever likely to be built again!   John Speller
