Roll Over Beethoven

Emily has learned another (third?) tune on the recorder, which seems to bear a passing resemblance to Ode to Joy. By an amazing coincidence, the word "joy" in Old English meant "horryd noyse".

Actually, that's a complete lie. Sometimes I can't beleive how mean I am. (Though you'd be feeling mean too if you had a recorder-wielding child creeping up behind you and subjecting you to a burst of strangulated Beethoven first thing in the morning...)
