ripov Tune Add: The Hole in the Wall (Henry Purcell) (28) RE: Tune Add: The Hole in the Wall: Henry Purcell 01 Jul 11

the Oxford Companion offers for The tudor period;
Domestic keyboard pitch 3 semitones below modern concert pitch
Secular Vocal pitch same as modern
Church Organ pitch a tone higher.
And re Bach;
in some cantatas ... the voice string and organ parts in A or Bb and the woodwind in C .. the exact pitch might depend on the organ where the work was performed.

So some flexibility there then!
