    Don’t take the following very seriously.

    I changed the melody to start at another point and edited it a bit. The app gave me the song: ‘Salut d’Amour’.

    Everything sounds better in French and in this case also sells better in French. However, the author of the song is Edward Elgar from the UK.

    Elgar also made the composition ‘Enigma Variations’. Elgar said there was another riddle behind the work, a puzzle he did not reveal.

    The complementary part of this puzzle is apparently Pergoles’
    ‘Stabat Mater’.

    And now we get back to France. The French composer Francis Poulenc composed his version of ‘Stabat Mater’ in 1950. Poulenc’s work has 12 parts, as well as owl hunting.

    Stabat Mater dolorosa (Très calme)
    Cujus animam gementem (Allegro molto–Très violent)
    O quam tristis (Très lent)
    Quae moerebat (Andantino)
    Quis est homo (Allegro molto–Prestissimo)
    Vidit suum (Andante)
    Eja Mater (Allegro)
    Fac ut ardeat (Maestoso)
    Sancta Mater (Moderato–Allegretto)
    Fac ut portem (Tempo de Sarabande)
    Inflammatus et accensus (Animé et très rythmé)
    Quando corpus (Très calme)

    Is this the last torment? Maybe not, but the funny similarity is noticeable.
