Hi Anne,

FYI, my music dictionary - The Oxford Dictionary of Music - lists *both*
spellings of the word as correct.

Make of that what you will! :)

But one that floors me is how often printed music, textbooks,
dictionaries, etc. misspell "leggero" - it is not "leggiero" and, to my

it seems that "leggiero" is indeed incorrect.
