    Hi Auke,
    i guess it’s about time to say thank you for your excellent work here and that you introduced me to many unknown but nevertheless pretty good organ pieces.
    By the way, I absolutely agree with you about not using a 16 ft. here, but as Kauffmann seems to enjoy the 16 ft. in his most if his scores I start to wonder whether he played an octave higher?

      Hi Oliver,

      I’m glad you find my work usefull.

      It’s possible Kauffmann meant that the pieces with 16ft should be played an octave higher. His organ however had rather a lot of stops. And the combination Fagott 16, Quintadena 8, played an octave higher, can be mimicked with some 8′ reed, a flute 8′ and a (soft) quint 3′. So I;m not sure what his intentions were. Perhaps for the better: now I can choose what I like best…
