Since Werkmeister II IS a well-tempered tuning, is it possible that in the UK "well" means "equal?"   In the second paragraph you are taken aback by well-tempered sytems, in the last paragraph, you praise them! What temperament is used in the organ you play?   Somebody straighten me out here.     Jim

It was late!   The organ I play is tuned to equal temperament.   In referring to "mean tone", I was recalling the Oudekerk in Amsterdam, the old organ at Alkmaar and others. I can't imagine why I called this "well tempered" when I meant "mean tone".   You may have gathered that I am not a tuning sort of person! In fact, I am extremely ignorant and should not even call myself an organist. I am a charlatan and should take up fly fishing instead.   Have I flagellated myself enough now?   Does mean equal bad tempered?   Regards,   Colin Mitchell UK     Werkmeister is --- James R McFarland <mcfarland6@juno.com> wrote: > > > I am confused ........is it possible that in > the UK "well" means > "equal?" > > In the second paragraph you are taken aback by > well-tempered sytems, in > the > last paragraph, you praise them   __________________________________________________ It's Samaritans' Week.
