    Just received a cute quote:


    Karl Barth's surmise: That while the angels may play only Bach in praising God, among themselves they play Mozart.

    I have a lovely framed caligraphied parchment that claims the text to be "from a German Opera House" that says:

    Bach gave us God's words
    Mozart gave us God's laughter
    Beethoven gave us God's fire
    God gave us music that we could pray without words


    Does anybody know if there is any truth to the claim of origin?

    That's a nice one too. But all links for that quote point to the same German opera house, wherever that is....?

    Having recently read about the pianist Ruth Laredo, Who was a good friend of my friend the late Leon Kirchner, I could not resist coming up with the following:

    RUTH LAREDO

    The lovely pianist Ruth,
    Whose playing revealed the truth,
    Of composers both great
    And composers both small,
    She really did justice to all!

    Oh well, in that case a similar approach should take care of quite a few others:

    2 (magic powers) wizzy goths
    4 (effervescent) fizzy goths
    6 (urinating) pissy goths
    10 (cowardly) sissy goths
    12 (in fog) misty goths
    13 (striking people) fisty goths
    15 (queen's nickname) lizzy goths
    17 (absent) missing goths
    18 (examining) quizzy goths
