Yes, I remember so many times my attention being called to the wrong note... But not that it sounds bad at all... What? That is what you have? Let me see... Indeed... Would you mind if I make a copy of this for myself? :D

You say that the half-tone would sound weird, Monica? I remember once I was give the following exercise: to note Mozart's Exultate, Jubilate. The recording I chose was the one with Emma Kirby and Christopher Hogwood with the Academy of Ancient Music.

After a lot of work (and a tape recorder that needed servicing) I managed. In those days I was not too concious of the difference between tunings from the XVIII century and the XIX and I was not aware Mozart had written this work in F. How the teacher (another one) was furious that I had made fun of her and written it out in F sharp!
