Though this is a clinet list--I may add that the saxophone family was designed
along the Eb-Bb line and the F-C line. The F-C grouping for use in orchestral
settings. It never worked out--talk to a so called C melody saxophonist.
There is a group working out of Chicago (I think) that plays the quartet lit
SATB on the F-C family.
