    You're very welcome ... I only now discovered Andre Rieu on YouTube.

    Great symphonic sound.

    That was beautiful CoCo!

    Did you hear the "alphabet song" in there? Who knew that was Mozart?

    Many think that Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was the original composer of this melody, a misconception [4] reinforced by its appearance as a "correct answer" in the original edition of Trivial Pursuit. However, Mozart wrote twelve variations for piano on the melody ( Variations on "Ah vous dirai-je, Maman" ), now catalogued as K. 265/300e in the Köchel-Verzeichnis .

    Sheet music notation for Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star

    [edit] Appearances of the melody

    Many songs in various languages have been based on the "Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman" melody. In English, "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" shares its melody with the "Alphabet Song" from 1834, and "Baa, Baa, Black Sheep".

    [edit] French "nursery rhyme" version

    Origin unknown.

    French lyricsEnglish translation

    Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman,
    Ce qui cause mon tourment.
    Papa veut que je raisonne,
    Comme une grande personne.
    Moi, je dis que les bonbons
    Valent mieux que la raison.

    Ah! I shall tell you, mum,
    what causes my torment.
    Papa wants me to reason
    Like an adult.
    I say that candy
    Is better than reason.

    The French "nursery rhyme" version also appears with slight variations:

    Bach is what the angels hear in the presence of God.

    Mozart is what they hear on their free time.

    Love that quotation.

    Angels have more freedom of choice than WT-adherents ...

    Burn the ships... I do enjoy Bach more than Mozart... Bach is the greatest composer of all time... but Beethoven's Grosse Fuge still kicks all of Bach's Fugue's asses. I have 4 versions of The Art of Fugue and still have to say any quartet worth their weight in shit can pull it off.
