    the hell cares whether he transposes down a half or a whole step. You people 
    have too much of a hangup for high Bb's and C's. Furthermore, who cares how 
    old he is, as long as he does an artistic job.
  The lowering of keys is rather immaterial insofar as it affects Domingo's solo music. But one 
  must also take into account the not insignificant amount of music he must sing in ensemble
  with others -- it will lower their parts and perhaps not always to their benefit. 

  Then, the orchestral material will have to be adjusted as well at a not inconsiderable expense.
  IF the music is lowered more than a step it may actually take some of the parts "off" the
  various instruments -- that is, below their lowest compass -- and that is no small matter.

  So this is more than just "high note crap."
