Pitch

"Pitch is the relative frequency of vibration." Keely

A relative frequency within context of other frequencies.

"The comparison of pitch should not be limited to a few treble instruments, but should begin with drums and double-basses, and so proceed upwards. The process, lastly, should not be carried on by compelling all to tune up to the sharpest, but by bringing the sharper instruments slightly down to a medium pitch; this would obviate the constant need for cutting instruments to pieces which is now felt, and prevent the steady tendency to sharpen, which is ruining our voices, and rendering much classical music impossible to all but singers of rare and exceptional organization.” [W.H. Stone; Excerpt from The Scientific Basis of Music 1878]
