GCF: Music Tests

From the Missouri School Music Newsletter, these are answers to test
questions compiled by music teachers.

Agnus Dei was a woman composer famous for her church music.

A refrain in music is the part you better not try to sing.

A virtuoso is a musician with real high morals.

John Sebastian Bach died from 1750 to the present.

Handel was half German, half Italian, and half English. He was rather large.

Beethoven wrote music even though he was deaf.He was so deaf he wrote
loud music. He took long walks in the forest even when everyone was
calling him. I guess he could not hear so good.

Beethoven expired in 1827 and later died from this.

Henry Purcell is a well known composer few people have ever heard of.

Aaron Copland is one of your most famous contemporary composers. It
is unusual to be contemporary. Most composers do not live until they are dead.

An opera is a song of bigly size.

In the last scene of Pagliacci, Canio stabs Nedda who is the one he
really loves. Pretty soon Silvio also gets stabbed, and they all live
happily ever after.

Music sung by two people at the same time is called a duel.

I know what a sextet is but I had rather not say.

Most authorities agree that music of antiquity was written long ago.

My very best liked piece of music is the Bronze Lullaby.

My favorite composer is Opus.

Question: What are kettle drums called?
Answer: Kettle drums.

For some reason, they always put a treble clef in front of every line
of flute music. You just watch.

The most dangerous part about playing cymbals is near the nose.

Just about any animal skin can be stretched over a frame to make a
pleasant sound once the animal is removed.

----------- Today's saying or thought -------------------------

I hate when people accuse me of lolly gagging when I am quite clearly
dilly dallying.
