Actually, if as Nigel said, 716 is slightly flat of F old concert pitch,
that puts A up around 900Hz (or 450Hz if preferred) - multiply by the 12th root 
of 2 (roughly 1.0594631), 4 times for F#, G, G# & A - this does not agree 
with 428.5, which I think was Handel's pitch-fork.

So where does JRK of LL get his authority?
