My dim memory reminds me that ONE of the melodies was "Twinkle Twinkle, Little Star." If you think it through, and don't limit yourself to meter, rythmn, keys, repetition, you can begin to see what mulitude of possibilities exist. The other three melodies, as I dimly remember, delt with minor keys, different modes, different scales, etc. Bob
