The Great Composer Quiz – November 29, 2020
This time, it’s a Quiz about finding your most comfortable rank in society. This Great came from the humblest origins. His family was so poor they essentially rented out their son at age five to a distant relative, and he never again lived at home. He rose in stature throughout his long career and, as he put it, “associated with kings and many great ones, and received from their lips much flattery, but I have never wished to live on a level of intimacy with them, for I had rather hold to the people of my own station.” So, who was this man amongst royalty living with his own folk, this Great Composer?
