30Q #74

Postby Shapley » Fri Dec 29, 2006 9:10 am

Arise! For Sol has broken the horizon's hold!
A new day dawns, full of wonders untold!
So many questions, so much to do!
The time is right for another thrirty Q!

From hundreds of works, one is selected,
so many worthy pieces necessarily rejected.
Only one, alas, have I now in mind,
search for clues, it's identity to find!

Trumpetmaster takes the bait,
I didn't have too long to wait.
'Ere the twentieth century beginned
this work had already been penned.

This work - an orchstra does it feature?
Was it composed before Young confirmed light's wave nature?
While I'm enjoying Wolfgang's art,
please tell me, does a soloist play a part?

An orchestra is indeed necessary,
a proper performance of this work to carry.

In 1805, to prove that light was a wave,
Thomas Young the method unto us gave.
I can't say enough about Mr. Young in my rhyme.
He decifered Hieroglyphs in his spare time.
He wrote many works, though it is said, indeed,
that the hieroglyphs were much easier to read!
In the year Mr. Young performed his light-wave caper,
this work had yed to appear on paper.

Regarding the soloist, or shall I say more,
for several can be found throughout the score,
No single instrument always in the spotlight there be,
though sometimes one, or two, or three.

Was the work written between 1700 and 1800?

Was the composer alive after 1831? If yes, was (s)he born in the 19th century?

Composed after 1805, before 1900. :)

I wonder as I sip my beer
If any vocals are found here.
And if the work has movements three
Or is there only one maybe.

LIstening to this work, I've found
that vocals do indeed abound.
While movement may not be the word
when discussion of this work are heard,
this work does not comprise parts three,
nor only one part does there be.

Nat Turner led a small slave band
in a rebellion that spread throughout the land
In the year in Navneeths query I missed,
and yes, the composer did then exist.

The year of eighteen hundred and one
had passed, and the century was rolling on
'ere the composers mother gave him birth
and he first set foot upon this Earth.

And for the record, lest anyone wonder,
number seven was Dai Breads, number eight the one under.
The questions are proceeding in manner fine,
the next one will be question number nine.

Since the question of vocals has now been broached,
I'll answer a question that troubles us most.
When discussing the work, it is my intent,
that voice be considered an instrument.

Did 1900 rumble past
Ere our composer breathed his last?
And are the voices, bass & higher
Joined in song by a full-sized choir?

Alas! My apologies to you,
I find myself home with the flu.
And thus I've not had care nor time
to spend composing any more rhyme.

'Ere the twentieth century transpired
this composer had already expired.
A chorus indeed shares the scene
With bass and soprano and those in-between.

Is it an opera?

Was the composer born before 1820?

Is the composer German or Italian?

This work indeed an opera be.
it's composer born 'ere eighteen twenty,
in Italy or in Germany, true
but you did not ask which of the two!
