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!
