Actually, T, it would be Forte Fortissimo (fff; sometimes also called Fortississimo). If you really wanna blow the congregation’s eardrums, forte won’t cut it. HAHAHA

🙂 True. Thanks. You have to turn it up to be relevant!

PS – sorry, I should explain the music term, and not assume it’s understood! Forte (f) means loud. Fortissimo (ff) means very loud. Fortississimo (fff) means to play as loudly as possible. I’ve not seen it on sheet music personally, but I’ve read that occasionally one will encounter fffff.
This post made me laugh very hard. Thanks for sharing it, T!

Thanks. I knew about f and ff but I can’t handle anything louder than that… I’m glad you liked this one however. Thanks for visiting.

I understand. 🙂 Though I think you would have no problem with fff used in a piece for emphasis, for example – expressing a strong emotion. Music dynamics (like piano vs forte, etc) are part of what expresses the meaning in a piece.
Think of it like talking – we don’t shout at one another all the time, do we? (Ok some people do…) But we may raise and lower our voices, or speak faster or slower, or change our tone, to convey meaning and express ourselves. That is how music dynamics should be used.
Thanks for providing a humorous respite in the midst of the current goings on in the church and world.
