    You didn’t recognize the Mozart or Holst?
    Incidentally, if you comment using an email address (real or fake, as long as it’s the same each time), you can avoid having your comment go through the moderation queue.

    your entry said:
    “W.A. mozart” which now that I understand it is wolfgang amadeus…but at the time I first read your post, I was like “w.a. mozart? whats that, some kind of techno-pop band?”
    And nope, never heard of Holst.

    Love the Holst (although I prefer the first 3 movements) — only passingly familiar with the Mozart piece (music school was too long ago) as well as (in general) the artists Fairport (I’m more of a fan of Richard Thompson’s solo work), Pixies and Ben Folds…

    I adore No. 5. I’ve rated it five stars. Both copies of it.
    btw, I now have 8 little tomato seedlings and the makings of a bean!

    The Requiem is the only Mozart I deign to own. The rest of his œuvre – smug, mincing cleverness and crap trumpet parts, feh!
    Rana: Hoorah! Which variety/ies of tomato?

  8. Rana wrote:

    Both! Four of the Black Plum and five of the McMoots Mysteries.
    The bean is one of the dark speckly ones, but it seems to be struggling to break through the top of the little sprouty peat pellet. I guess it’s that heavy bean part that makes it hard. No sign of the other beans yet.

    Yeah, beans take time to cast off their seed coats. I tried to help some of mine along, and wound up decapitating several…

    Ha! dEUS! I own all their albums plus side projects. Uhm, I didn’t recognise no.s 8 & 9.

    Ms. Bookish, you’re directly responsible for me owning any dEUS at all.
