This should remain 'above the line' for a day or so at least, as there are music questions included.

Usual request, as for my quizzes, please do not post the answers in the thread

You thank me too much.
I compose them for my local club, I just re-use them here.

As stated in previous quizzes, I'm happy for any of them to be re-used (in whole or in part) if being used for charity, or at least, not for personal profit.
