But, devoid of guessing, I'll try to narrow it down further:

Does the opus number end in 6?

Dai, I won't count your guess, as I answered Shap's question after your guess. :)

I agree!

It is indeed Opus 6. It includes 6 songs. Song # 6 is the one I had in mind. None But The Lonely Heart, song for voice and piano Op. 6/6

Technically, the next 30Q is open to anyone who wishes to do it.

For record-keeping purposes, have you counted the number of questions, Cat? No one guessed it correctly per se and I don't think all 30 questions were asked.

I lost track Nav. I'll have to go back and see how many questions were asked overall (excluding guesses).

I'll do another one, but it'll be a day to two before I start it.

If someone starts one before then, however, my feelings won't be hurt. :D

I've noticed that [grumble, grumble, grumble].

But then, I'm not a gib fan of modern poetry. This is, after all, a classical music station, I expect the same of any poetry posted here.

Yeah, right. Like any of my poetry will ever be called 'classic'
