    I will never, ever say that one does not need an altissimo range or that a G is sufficient. The more you have, the better it will be for you. An embouchure that can vibrate the full range of the horn(unlimited range) is a healthy working embouchure. The province of the altissimo register player is not limited to the lead or scream player. Punch up the web sites of Bahb Civileti and listen to quite literaly, the most amazing Natural trumpet work I have ever heard. The same goes for Edward Tarr and Friederick Immer.Startlingly Beautiful. The playing is immaculate. Roccoco Baroque music is devilishly difficult to perform on modern horns, but to play it flawlessly on a natural is astounding.

    Apparently those down under BLOKES also eat crumpets -- I learn something new everyday --

    English crumpet
    Crumpets are generally circular roughly 7 cm in diameter and roughly 2 cm thick. Their shape comes from being restrained in the pan/griddle by a shallow ring. They have a characteristic flat top with many small pores and a half-chewy half-spongy texture. They may be cooked until ready to eat warm from the pan, but are frequently left slightly undercooked so that they may be cooled and stored before being eaten freshly toasted. In Australia and New Zealand, branded square crumpets can be purchased from supermarkets, designed to easily fit in a standard toaster.[3]

    I guess that is ok - as long as they use proper hygiene methods for preparing food.
