The part for each basset *hound* is, for obvious reasons, extemporaneous.
Now if you wish to write out some parts, and train your hounds to sing
them, that might work, but don't go claiming later on that the parts were
original Mozart!! And make sure you specify whether the parts are for
*dark* or *bright* hounds.

Love it when this happens - thanks for the good laugh!
