This is absolutely one of my favorite posts ever
Just remember Wuuthrad - it's basically all your fault that this popped out at all - and when the complaints
start pouring in (as you can see, there's been one already from Mark) I won't be holding onto no blame :x

I tell you Lawler - It's becoming hard work :chaud:

I'll probably wake-up tomorrow and see more clearly the error of Wuuthrad's ways...

I think I know what you mean, and I'm just watching from the sidelines. The few minutes I spent trying to think of lyrics that would illustrate my silly vocal trio idea a few posts back left me with nothing. And with my noggin tired out! :mrgreen:

Please feel free to take all the credit, and you can blame all you like!

I feel this is quite possibly an Holy Grail of Music:

Fernando Sor's Lost Tome of Epic Sing Songs!

After all- What has happened to all of his Opera, Orchestral work and Song anyway?

Was there a massive conspiracy to deny this legendary composer his rightful place in history because he was a Revolutionary?

It's out there - some of it is very beautiful - here's a little "ditty" entitled Ti ricordi che giurasti, surely a challenge to Martin's opus magnum:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n5Y_lOqjbQM

Text translates:

Remember how you swore to your sweet beloved,
Never to break the chains binding your heart.
If yet my suspicions offended you, my miseries are no atonement,
Forgive me my dearest ... return to your first love.


I spent many years as an accompanist to singers and still have his Arietts for voice and piano (the above is one of them); they are attractive, accessible and, for me, outweigh most of his guitar works by a considerable margin.

Though they were incredibly popular in their day - I suspect that the style simply went out of fashion.

Sor wrote a lot of very good music that wasn't for the guitar.

Maybe you aren't quite daft enough!... I was more referring to editing picture-files and posting... the first, off-computer, part of the exercise
comes to me sort of all too easily (perhaps with an enjoyable struggle)... taking breaks, sleep... or perhaps not getting enough sleep
causes the good level of derangement :?

Wuuthrad - I trust you find the standard is here maintained to the conclusion :wink:

... and Mark ('n' all) - I hope this makes you laugh the more.

The final section repeat, with fish dropped from the menu -

Phyllis won't half be pleased
if the dish comes with peas
whether out of a tin
fresh from pod
or were freezed
frozen peas, garden peas, out-tin peas, non-big peas
petits pois if you're French
or quite fancy...

When I brought these victuals home
says Phyllis "Oh Sweet green peas
that's just what I fancy
on a plate with two poached eggs
and mush-a-rooms
then some treacle pud
lots of custard!"

The Compleat Poacher's Lament - 1st section.png
The Compleat Poacher's Lament - 2nd section.png
for some reason unknown, adding extra words to the same file caused it to be rejected as too big for posting here
so I've had to split it into two - I can't see any errors - yet :shock: - maybe I'd change 'if you're French' to 'if one's French'...
