    I've become interested in Portative Organs recently. As far as I can learn from the interwebs, portatives typically had only 1 rank of pipes, a range of about 2 octaves, and typically spoke at 4' pitch. I've got a rank of 37 String pipes that were once part of a Voix Celeste (these were the de-tuned pipes) that I am now having thoughts to turn into a portative. I had previously wanted to build a positive organ, but this project is too big for me to take on at the moment. I have a timber keyboard, and two partial ranks at the moment, but not enough to proceed.

    Portatives


    Does anyone use one nowadays? Is there any music written for them?

    How many ranks can a portative have before it becomes too big to carry?
