In her memoires Astrid Varnay tells of Beecham conducting a rehearsal of
a tenor singing "Celeste Aida", he was flat and kept getrting flatter
and flatter. The concert master whispered to Beecham "Don't you want to
stop and start over?" and Beecham said "No. Pretty soon he'll be a whole
octave down and then we'll be together again."
