Don't forget that in German, we make a difference between words that start
with a capital character.

In the original mail from Mark, he writes "stimmen" in small letters, which
is the verb for "tuning".
In your reply you changed it to "Stimmen" which would mean "parts" as you say.

Thinking that over I guess that what is written on Mark's partiture was
originally starting with a capital character?
Makes more sense. "Zugleich Stimmen" therefore would mean that you have to
use the partitur for the other guys, and that there are no extra printings.

Hey Mark, how 'bout it?
