Comment:        RE: SHK 11.1633 Music

In The Taming of the Shrew (3.1) Bianca's three suitors all pretend to
be tutors or teachers to get access to Batista's house to woo her.
Hortensio pretends to be a music tutor, and there is lot of punning on
whether his instrument is in tune between Bianca and Lucentio, who is
teaching her Latin in the same scene. When Hortensio finally gets
Bianca's attention he hands her a message that is a bit of wooing
doggerel based on the names of the first six notes of a G scale.

Dear Shakespeareans,

I disagree with Fran Teague's approach to Ken Adelman's query on
Shakespeare and Music.  A simple question, it generated responses of
great richness and insight.  As I am writing to you all for the first
time I want to thank you for a superior list.  I look forward to it
daily.
