He also composed background cues and a snappy broadway two-beat number, a perfect tune for the TV show. The songs “But who may abide†and “How beautiful are the feet†were changed after the premiere of this piece, which was debuted in London along with its composer's piece Samson. In between, the title character pays Sparafucile to kill the Duke of Mantua, but the assassin instead decides to kill the first person that walks in the door. The most famous section was inspired by a nighttime walk with the composer's best friend August Jaeger, and is titled "Nimrod."

Water is more manageable, and there are places where artificial lakes and rivers have been formed with considerable effect. Talk to an English statesman of the fairest, the most equitable proposal for the advancement of Scotland as a nation, the most just and indisputable claim on behalf of her public establishments or functionaries, the idea of a Scotch Job starts up like an apparition, and frightens all power of equitable decision out of the Minister's head. It is, we think, Captain Brazen, in the Recruiting Officer, who hesitates whether he shall lay out the fortune of his wife in the speculation of a theatre or a privateer.

The trio of this work's third movement is in 2/4, and its metronome marking indicates the same tempo as the first movement. Ultimately, for me, the only honest thing to do in composing is to write straight from the heart and guts, whilst closely involving the brain. To the delight of his generally well-educated Savoy Theatre audiences, Sullivan often quoted or imitated famous themes and passages from popular tunes or well-known composers such as Schubert, Donizetti, Bellini and Mendelssohn.

François-Joseph Gossec (1734 - 1829) was a Belgian composer of operas, string quartets, symphonies, and choral works who worked in France. The first translation was done by a clergyman who refused to translate the parts that were salacious or sexual in nature. Its second movement introduces a gentle oboe solo, while it opens with an orchestral depiction of an urban landscape which is interrupted by a clarinet solo and the beginning of a group of sections that its creator identified as "decoy games."

Sullivan continued, throughout the rest of his life, and in his will, to take good care of Fred's children, continuing to correspond with them and to be concerned with their education, marriages and financial affairs. The Minuet in this work features a trio that, unlike many of the composer's other pieces, is not self-contained. In 1975, Robert Helpmann created a balletic version of The Merry Widow for the AB.

The numbering given is that for Machaut's musical output in accordance with the Ludwig Edition (Guillaume de Machaut: Musikalische Werke, edited by Friedrich Ludwig & Heinrich Besseler, Leipzig 1926-54), with that in the Schrade Edition (Polyphonic Music of the Fourteenth Century, volumes ii-iii, edited by Leo Schrade, Monaco 1956) as an alternate after "/". We do not, on the whole, mean to arrogate for the unhappy Chevalier the character of a great man, to which he displays few pretensions; but to deny energy to the prince who plunged into an enterprise so desperate, and where his own personal safety was so deeply implicated, on the word of one or two private and disappointed men, contradicted by a hundred others, seems to involve a denial of the whole history from beginning to end.
