    Quick note query:

    Letter T- 3rd beat: Is the top note in the group of 6 supposed to be a D# or a C#?

    My part has D#, but the orchestra sound like they are playing C#

    I’ve not played this in orchestra so haven’t been able to check the score.

    I checked a copy that has been scanned into the Petrucci Music Library, and it has a C#. This was only the harp part however. (I didn’t want to go through the score for the entire opera!).

    Here is a link to the part: http://imslp.info/files/imglnks/usimg/2/28/IMSLP54206-PMLP03532-StraussR-7Veils.Harp.pdf

    Your ears are correct. 🙂
    It is C#.

    I remember that Professor Elizabeth Richter did an extensive editing of the harp parts for that. We used copies from the Metropolitan Opera House in harp class, and they were a complete mess, with so many decades of fingerings and pedalings. You could never get a clear view of it that way.

    You wouldn’t happen to have a copy of her edits would you? My part is a mess!!

    I do, but it is mixed up with all my other versions. Ask her for a copy.
