But Bert - the treble clef *is not* the soprano clef!! We
use a treble clef; 2nd line G. The soprano clef is 1st line G
(same clef symbol, just one line lower).

Why don't we call the soprano clarinet a treble clarinet? I
do not find the mix of our current treble clef with a soprano
clarinet logical.
