Comments: Cohen's "Hallelujah" and Mozart's "Lacrimosa": Part II.
So there you have it. Shakespeare has died half way through King Lear and now you have to finish the play. You have 24 hours to do the job, and nasty bloggers will have 1,000 years to make fun of you.

That's quite over the top and says something about the state of the current culture -- that we draw more value from navel-gazing vs. actually doing something minor, anonymous, yet productive.

He's heir to Woody Guthrie's throne, not Dylan Thomas's (yes, the irony).

Throne? Is there a comparison on the impact each made on the world?

Thank you, again. The final "amen" had always bothered me, but I thought it was my lack of musical education for not getting it. Me, critique Mozart? Not bloody likely. It's still a stunningly beautiful piece of music.
