    I see the Tango accompanied by the music of Astor Piazzolla - something my gal and I will be performing later on this evening with some friends of ours at a private party.

    Take a shot at it, my dear sir. I can thing of dozens of gorgeous CD covers that fit the music like hand in glove. Hypérion, perhaps?

    Here's something:

    http://www.tommwalker.co.uk/Triptych...s/LM46_500.jpg

    The canvas illustrates my favorite organ composer after JSBach, namely, Charles Arnauld Tournemire sitting at the organ console of Ste. Clotilde in Paris. The canvas comes from a collection of 51 triptychs entitled "The Mystic Image Cycle" by Tom M. Walker - here's a link:

    Enjoy!

    I like Tournemire, too, but why not make this exercise into a stimulating game by withholding the answer for a moment, say, twenty-four hours? Obviously, the visual representation should be relatively explicit.
    cheers

    Woops! Sorry if I made a mistake - I certainly did not want to let the cat out of the bag too early

    No mistake. We're merely negotiating the terms of ... who knows what?!! I see that you include French in your signature. How fluent are you in French?
    BTW, it's still your turn.

    How fluent in French am I? Just barely enough to save my neck and read the newspapers.

    Still my turn? Yikes - Ummm, lets see now:

    Hope this works.......

    Fellow Magle-rites take a shot at this, because CD will be withholding his enigmatic answer for the next 23:35 hours.....

    Ooh, what a fantastic idea, ON!

    Aw, my pc keeps timing out on the link CD posted. I'll have to check back later.

    This should be great fun!

    Edit- Ok, I've seen it, and that's a toughy. Obviously I'm not as well versed in organ works as you organists. So I'll agree with ON's answer.

    Oh my goodness ON - Am I known for "enigmatic answers"?

    Heavens to Betsy.......What have I done?
    If thats the case then I don't think that anyone on this forum will get the idea behind the picture that I posted.

    Apropos "Sacrificial Lamb" - In Messiaen's "La Nativite Du Seigneur" there is a movement entitled "Jesus Accepte La Souffrance"(Jesus Accepts The Suffering) - Messiaen so perfectly captures the horror that will befall Christ.

    Are we ready for CD's answer yet? I know I am. Plus I've got one I'd like to share...
