just grate to my ear. However, the tower acoustics play a large part in
how pronounced that effect is.
Andrew is so right about the tower acoustics playing a big part in
accentuating the lack of a proper octave: the tenor and treble at St
George's are quite painful to listen to dodging together ...having
just got back from practice there, they are still discordantly ringing
in my ears!
