T in Oklahoma (Okiemockbird) Anyone heard of 'devil tones'? (42) RE: Anyone heard of 'devil tones'? 03 Jul 00


Another source for evidence of a "ban" would be penitential manuals. If some manuals direct the confessor to ask a singer "did you ever sing b-natural when you should have sung b-flat ?" then that would suggest that some clergy at least wished the tritone would be "banned". It would also suggest, of course, that they weren't getting their wish.
