    There must be something on teh interwebs which will tell you the average range of a soprano/mezzo/alto/tenor/bass...
    *looks*
    soprano range: Bb below mid-C to Eb above staff (2 1/2 octaves) surely a coloratura soprano range this...
    mezzo-soprano range: G below mid-C to A above staff (just over 2 octaves) see, this is when I start thinking you need to take the soprano range with a pinch of salt...I've always sung soprano in choirs and have never needed to go higher than the B below the E they describe (not that I could anyway) and I can't reach as low as a G below C, as they describe for the mezzo. *scratches head*
    contralto range: D below mid-C to F# at top of staff (just over 2 octaves)
    tenor range: Bb below C (below mid-C) to C# above C above mid-C (2 1/4 octaves)
    baritone range: F below C (below mid-C) to Ab above mid-C (2 1/4 octaves)
    bass range: D below C (below mid-C) to F# above mid-C with an optional (soft) lower extension down to Bb 2 octaves below mid-C (2 2/3 octaves)

    Ah, well I don'y trust Sib. It tells me half of my saxophone notes are completely out of the range, when they are so not.
    They go red for difficult notes, then bright red for impossible notes. I know it's not 100% accurate (I play trumpet & bass and they're not totally right) but they tend to be more or less correct At least gives me an idea of the ranges I can go for.

    *foams at mouth*

    btw, I recommend the EMI budget boxed sets too, you can get some really good deals for well recorded sets of work, e.g. complete Mozart Symphonies/complete Beethoven Symphonies and Piano Concertos/complete Mahler Symphonies for £30 each. Those are the ones I have and I love 'em!

    Has anyone heard of Gorecki? I'm listening to Symphony III, Op.36 (Symphony of sorrowful songs): II. Lento E Largo - Tranquillisimo at the moment and it's really good. I'm also an Elgar fan and I like Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings.

    Well done Mark Simpson
