Treble clef - from D immediately below the bottom line of the staff to G# an 11th above that.

Plans to perform these Stephen? Not heard them for ages - some of my favourite miniatures along with Matyas Seiber's French songs.

Very cool thanks Mark - sounds not so 'high voice' then - which when its a mezzo is rather helpful. Sshh - don't tell anyone ... something's afoot ... :wink:
