This is the altos I'm talking about. We should have realised something was up when the warm-up started a bit higher than mid-range and just kept on going up. Then we settled down to a rehearsal with just the sopranos and altos (the men were having their own rehearsal in the other room) and we altos suddenly found ourselves singing the Bridesmaids' Chorus in Trial by Jury along with the sopranos. I think the only reason we didn't grumble (well not too much, anyway) about all the top Fs was because there isn't all that much for the altos to do in Trial by Jury.
It's the sopranos who should be worried though. Now they have no excuse at all for not reaching top G and A!
