Trente, Sa. Maria Maggiore


Casparini's activities were a rebuilding in the years 1686-1687 of the organ originally built by Caspar Zimmermann in 1532-1536 and changed by Carlo Prati in 1657-1659. The stop-list and remarks here are quoted from VAN DIJK 1988: 39. MATHIAS & WORSCHING (1960: 18) gives a version of the stop list which is differing in details.

Trente, Sa. Maria Maggiore


The "Flautin selvatiche" is in Germany known as "Waldflöte".
The Arpa finta maybe was a set of bells.
The reeds in the pedal can be considered a typical German addition to Italian organ building.

The stop-list follows:

Organo Grande Organo Eco Pedale
Principale grande 8 Flauto stoppa 8 Contro Bassi 16
Principale secondo 8 Flauto aperto 4 Ottava e contrabasso 8 + 16
Ottava 4 Cymbalo o Sesquialtera Ripieno
Duodecima 2 2/3 Mistura Posaun 16
Decima quinta 2 Trombetta 8
Decima nona 1 1/3
Vigesima seconda 1
Vigesima sesta 2/3
Vigesima nona 1/2
Trigesima terza 1/3
Trigesima sesta 1/4

Flauto stoppa 8
Flauto aperto 4
Flautin selvatiche 2
Corneto picolo
Corneto grande
Trombetta 8 Arpa finta
Voce Umana 8 Tamburo
Fifaro 8 Rosignoli
Regallo 4 Cucu

It is not common to notice in an Italian organ a Vox Humana belonging to the reeds. That the Fifaro should have been a reed is in all probability a mistake from the notator of the stop list.
