The name may also mean "(the) key suited for playing with the organ"; According to Dore probably the best known of all Kuntsertus; According to Weis Bentzon, who spells it Punt’’e organu [sic], made in 6 keys (D, E, F, G, A, and B♭), to Dore in 7 keys (C, F, G, A, D, E, and B♭), and to Lai in 4 keys only (F, G, A, and B♭); NB¹: Franco Oppo spells it Punt’e órganu; NB²: ➺ Kontrappuntu.

Mankosedda (in G): Arrefinu: g¹; Krais: a¹-b¹-c²-d²; Mankosa manna: Arrefinu: d¹; Krais: e¹-f♯¹-g¹-a¹; Tumbu: G (These tunings agree with those of an instrument in C, as presented in »Launeddas«); NB³: Though explicitly giving the "Partitura" of an instrument in G major, Dore erroneously notes an F natural, instead of F♯, in both the staff and his explanation.
NB: Example(s) to be replaced with staff-notation.
