It does. How could you doubt it? See the CV-64/NCC-1701 references in the "something different" thread. There's a choir... :rofl:

18. Is the composer Benjamin Britten?

Yes


Since the last 2 were dependant on the response to this one (posted first) and I haven't checked the thread for a while, I won't count the questions about Arnold, as they would not have even been asked if I was on top of things and here answering the questions more often...

Nah...the if-not-then type of questions are quite normal in 30Q. :)

Is one of the non-orchestra performer a tenor?

I think Mr. Naf got it...

Yes, Britten's War Requiem.

I was going to do his Six Metamorphases, but I figured that one would be a little too obvious, if you just look at my name...

(Oddly enough, I've never heard the War Requiem. Maybe parts of it at some point, but never the whole thing.)
