..."inestimably learned..."!!!? Good grief - as if...! What do you want Fred?

Anyway - op409!!! How much other cr*p did this composer write? It is my range though - even that low D, which would be a bit quiet, but reliable enough.

Funnily enough I'm currently rehearsing Mahler 2 and James MacMillan's St John Passion, and between the two I have to sing from a bottom B flat (below the bass clef) right up to the G above middle C, two octaves and a sixth. I'm afraid the G is falsetto, and the bottom Bb so quiet that it's more of a rumble than a real note!!!
