English term or phrase: organ point
Contesto: The longer pipe serves as a drone, providing a prolonged organ point. The shorter pipe provides the melody type.
Che cos'è un prolonged organ point? Un pedale prolungato? Si sta parlando della struttura di un arghul (strumento musicale).
Grazie!

pedale
Explanation:
In music, a pedal point (also pedal tone, pedal note, organ point, or pedal) is a sustained tone, typically in the bass, during which at least one foreign, i.e., dissonant harmony is sounded in the other parts. A pedal point sometimes functions as a "non-chord tone", placing it in the categories alongside suspensions, retardations, and passing tones.

Pagina italiana corrispondente:
Nella teoria musicale, un pedale è una nota (o un gruppo di note) di lunga durata, quasi sempre nel registro basso, cui spesso si aggiunge un'armonia dissonante in altre voci. Il termine proviene dalla musica per organo, per la capacità di questo strumento di tenere a lungo delle note, solitamente suonate con la pedaliera.
