Claviorgan, Claviorganum - a combination of a harpsichord and a chair-organ. History of this chamber instrument may be found in musical encyclopaedias (such as the New Grove) or on the internet - there is a Wiki article about the instrument available. A list of selected surviving claviorgana including their design and stop specification was supplied by dr. Stuart Frankel.

This Hauptwerk model is purely virtual, combining stops from several instruments recorded by Sonus Paradisi in past. Alltogether 16 speaking stops, plus a Zimbelstern. Nevertheless, the samples, as they are used in the claviorganum, are not to be found in any of the existing Sonus Paradisi sample sets.

The stop naming was chosen to be Latin, because of the exquisite and noble sounding of the language which couples perfectly with the refined and corteous sounding of the carefuly selected and for-the-purpose revoiced stops.
