Misc. Comments

While the part of Prometheus doesn't often go above E (above middle C), it stays in this upper part of the bass range for most of the time, and the Es include some long sustained notes. There is one F above that, also sustained, and a couple of F#s (though there are ossias for these). On the whole, this is going to be more comfortable for a baritone.
