Czestochowa / Jasna Gora, Chapel of Our Lady


This organ was built by A. H. Casparini in 1721-1722. The organ had 9 stops. The stop-list in GOLOS (1992: 269) is cited from the original contract, which is literally cited on page 173-174. It is in Italian.
Try to read it aloud!

Prinzipale di Stagno di 8 piedi in faciada
Coppell di legno di 8 Piedi
Quinta Denna di Piombo di 8 Piedi
Octava di Piombo di 4 Piedi
Flautino per la musicha 4 Piedi
Quinta di Piombo 3 piedi
Super Ottava di Piombo 2 Piedi

Sesquialtera di Piombo 1 1/2 piede

The "Quinta Denna" is especially named in the contract as a "Voca nova"
The "Flautino" was in "Ton di Camera" (Kammerton).

Unfortunately, I do not know what has become of this instrument.
