In response to Perry Herzfeld's post about WS's references to music or
musicians:

I think any vocalist can get a chuckle (or maybe offense) at Benedick's
response to Balthasar's "Sigh No More" in Much Ado:

     And he had been a dog that should have howl'd
     thus, they would have hang'd him, and I pray God
     that his bad voice boe no mischief.

How about Richard II 5.5.41-3:

RICHARD
Ha, ha; keep time! How sour sweet music is
When time is broke and no proportion kept.
So is it in the music of men's lives.
And here have I the daintiness of ear
To check time broke in a disordered string,
But for the concord of my state and time
Had not an ear to hear my true time broke.
