Don't misunderstand me. I do think it should be played in some kind of
meantone. Some of the "thirds" do sound "harsh" (c#-e#), especially for
someone not used to such a tuning, but that's the way it should be. I don't
even think, to go back to the first message in this thread, it is
"irresponsible", as Kirk said, not to mention that such a tuning was used
for the recording.
