(back) Subject: Britten: Festival Te Deum op.32 ? From: "Charles E. Peery" <cpeery19@idt.net> Date: Sat, 18 Mar 2000 09:23:52 -0400   Friends,   I have a dumb question: throughout the piece there are those double grace notes in both hands which the composer states are "on the beat". The = pedal notes visually line up with the main chord, which means that the pedal = note will sound "off the beat" if played the way it looks. I find myself playing the pedal note with the first grace note(s) instead of with the = main chord. I can't decide if I'm telling myself it feels more "natural" that way or if I'm just taking the easy way out. I've listened to three recordings which, due to the nature of either the recording acoustics or just the way the pedal pipes speak, haven't decided the matter for me.   What do you think? Thanks in advance,   Chuck Peery Cincinnati
