"I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That's deep enough. What do you want, an adorable pancreas?" - Jean Kerr


Puzzle to ponder:

Why do all of these start with the same 12 notes?

Palestrina - Missa Ecce Ego Johannes - Gloria
Mozart - Missa brevis in C major - Gloria
Thomas Tallis - Mass For Four Voices - Gloria
Vaughan Williams - Mass in G minor - Gloria

I'm sure there're more masses out there starting with these 12 notes.

akikonomu: okay. my guess is all of them are based on the opening of a gregorian

palestrina is a big clue

i'd say the gregorian is a big possibility. tallis + mozart studied the chants, probably. tallis being a baroque scholar, and mozart being one of the few composers in the classical period to muck around with baroque composition

Tim the Great: it's Mass IV's gloria
