Mark Twain said of Wagner: His music is better than it sounds.
Well, my memory's gappy and maybe it wan't Twain, and maybe not even Wagner,
but the point is the same. These things are resolved by human judgment made
in the process of perceiving them, which is why canons of style, proportion,
and beauty float here and there from time to time and place to place.
Gunnar's and Curtis's informed comments about musical intervals are good
examples of what I mean (and quite illuminating for tone-deaf me).
