In honor of Bach's birthday today, here is a fun little puzzler.

Everybody knows I am not a Bach scholar, but I still got 5 questions correct. :)

Can anyone top that? :P

I got 8, one of them a lucky shot.

I got 7/10, a few of which were guesses. I did a lecture on the XXXX (spoilers), and printed up a color-coded guide to the Quodlibet avec les paroles, so that one definitely wasn't a guess. :wink: That wasn't the only one where the answer was in the audio.

That's okay, Stu. I had some lucky guesses. But I was very surprised by the first question. All this time I thought that was Emerson, Lake, and Palmer. Learn something new everyday!

I know that I'm a bit late on this, but I've become a sucker for all those FB quizzes out and so now that I saw this one I just had to do it. I did get 7 out of 10. I only missed one pertaining to Bach himself (what he did to the student when he was angry). I don't watch sports shows so missed the one that uses the Toccata in Dm. I'm most angry about the Paul Simon one because I knew that one, but went blank and guessed the wrong one.
