Thursday’s questions were:
1. Who said: Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.?
2. The lyrics to Danny Boy were set to which folk tune?
3. It’s jouers in French, suonare in Italian, tocar in Spanish and tākaro in Maori, what is it in English?
4. In which section of the orchestra would you find a bassoon?
5. What music/song/s would you like played at your funeral?
Points for answers:
Gravedodger got four (In response to your comment that it’s not for you to choose: while a funeral is for those who remain it’s about the one who has died so I think it’s helpful to tell those will be arranging the service what you’d like).
