Portative organ

DEFINITION

A small medieval organ, operated by only one person. The portative organ (sometimes referred to simply as a " portative ") was small enough to be carried or set on a table, and usually had only one set of pipes. It was normally strapped over the performer's shoulder when in use, thus allowing the right hand of the performer to operate the keys, and the left hand to operate the bellows.
