Lovely indeed! But let me object to at least one question where the answer is not that straightforward. In the question about Bach Goldberg Variations and his own copy discovered a few decades ago, not one but actually two of the answers are correct.

Thanks, Claudio. Perhaps you could tell us the two correct answers in a few days, when everyone has had a chance to try their hand. I am prepared to be corrected!

And I have already been corrected about the organ being discussed in 1727. Although there was a book written about that organ, it is now considered that the author’s point was not about equal temperament. I’m not sure why the source I consulted said otherwise, but I will find out when I next speak to Pieter van Dijk.

Things are never as straightforward as they seem!
