Just to help a little, as a former tuner.....etc. albeit a short term one.

A 440, per min. Or sec.   I can’t remember which.....just means that there are 440 beats each time the A is sounded...that is the third A, up from the bottom of the piano.  Over the years, SOMEBODY decided to brighten the tones by raising of the tuning of the instruments.  All the instruments raised and the voices too.

Makes for a brighter tone.....who knows which tuning should be done....
A440....A 435, etc., etc.
