I play MUCH more easily in flats..........give me five flats over two sharps any day! In my case, it stems from playing lots of gospel hymns that were more frequently in flats. Flats are easier, even than C to me.   I've become more familiar with playing in sharps because of playing the "dreaded" Christian contemporary music which so often is in D or G.......those must be good keys for guitar players. So I can do okay up to three sharps; beyond that, it really takes work And, of course, the CCM is often pretty easy to accompany by ear with ye olde I-IV-V7!   I'm an amateur, not a professional-------and I'd LOVE to have perfect pitch!   Dennis Steckley _____________________________________ Of course. And we all prefer sharp keys over flat keys because the first non-C keys we learned on the piano were sharp keys. UNLESS we later studied band instruments, where flat keys are FAR more intuitive, in which case our whole preference, even on keyboards, may shift to flats.   Alan

(back) Subject: Perfect Pitch From: "David Baker" <dbaker@lawyers.com> Date: Fri, 22 Aug 2003 16:04:18 -0400   I, too, seem to be inflicted with "perfect" pitch, although I have learned how to turn it off or at least ignore it. I think that doing so is necessary to retain what little there is of my sanity. Experience over the years has raised this question in my mind: is my perfect pitch the same as anybody else's perfect pitch? There have been times when I would give pitches to my choir and the pros in the group would have spasms because they thought the correct pitch was ever so slightly higher or lower. Put another way, could Mozart have had perfect pitch for the pitch level of his day, and another composer for his/her day? Another thought: could that be because I'm not a singer and don't have a singer's breath control and support?   Inquiring minds want to know.   Regards, David Baker

Don't know if that necessarily leads to sharp as opposed to flat keys. Maybe you're alluding to a different phenomenon. But adjusting the pitch down in newer hymnals is a little like the general dumbing-down of culture, but I don't want to say it is itself a dumbing-down. Just that = it is due to the general decline in culture that finds most folk singing a = lot less than their forebears did. Our ancestors used to gather around the piano and sing for an evening's entertainment; today their descendants passively listen.     Randy Runyon Music Director Zion Lutheran Church Hamilton, Ohio runyonr@muohio.edu

Our >ancestors used to gather around the piano and sing for an evening's >entertainment; today their descendants passively listen.     As a singer, not an organist, I tend to lurk here ... however, this comes somewhat into my area of experience if not expertise.   I'm not sure if this conclusion is necessarily completely valid. I don't argue about the dumbing down of culture or that people don't gather around =   the piano for singfests any more. But I can't go so far as to say that = the current generation "only" listens.   For background, I sing at a Dutch Reform church in Brooklyn, NY. This is now a largely african-american congregation (perhaps 2/3 these days) and they DO sing the hymns and such. There is an active volunteer choir although I won't comment on their abilities other than to say that they HAVE improved. But it's obvious that the hymns are sung by most of the congregation. Sure, we have those people who stand, hold the hymnal and never move their mouths! But it's quite different from when I sang at the =   episcopal St. James in Manhattan where virtually no one ever considered singing. The organist at the time opined that these people -- we're talking about a very wealthy congregation -- typically hire nannies to raise their children, housekeepers to clean their houses, and choirs to sing their songs. This is very much NOT the case at Old Dutch.   In addition, for the past few summers we have had frequent visitors from Wisconsin -- generally youth groups -- who come to Brooklyn for a week at = a time to "help out". They all sing for us at least one number with guitar accompaniment at services. (The church has a piano but that only exists = as a back-up for times when the organ isn't available, such as could have happened with our recent power failure but fortunately did not. But I assume these groups wouldn't use a piano in preference to the guitar any more than they would consider using the organ.) They DO all sound alike! But I think that is because of the music they listen to and = because these teenagers for the most part (if not totally) are not going to be music majors. This year two different groups sang the same setting of Amazing Grace in successive weeks and if my life had depended upon it I couldn't have told the difference between them. Clearly, there are no budding opera stars in these groups ... they don't sound like budding rock =   stars either. If anything they sound like folk singers. But they DO = sing.   As to tuning down the pitches in hymnals, I find that very depressing ... as a soprano I find these hymns already set low enough, thank you very much! And this particular soprano has very often sung alto in choral situations so it's not as if I have no low range. But hymns have always been set low for the congregation's benefit (for the most part) ... or so it has always seemed to me.   Mura
