    Nice work, ams!

    Wand also wrote a concertino for soprano and chamber orchestra called "Odi et Amo" (courtesy of Wiki).

    Bang On Am

    Wand also composed music, mostly songs with orchestral accompaniment and music for ballet. One composition was his concertino "Odi et amo", for soprano and chamber orchestra, which Wand wrote for his wife, the soprano Anita Westhoff.[3] Anita Wand (Westhoff) died on December 29, 2009 at Ulmiz (CH) at the age of 89 years.

    Hope my or rather Googles translation of Odi et amo is not too far off the mark X/Y/Z/A whatever to your most excellent self

    Just tuned back in, cracking stuff by l'amateur!

    I was hoping you'd have a go at my earlier "V" - were you otherwise engaged?

    And bravo for engaging with the troublesome "X" letter... let's see...
    "There is not much to see here," said I.
    "Nor to hear, miss," returned Mr Vholes. "A little music does occasionally stray in; but we are not musical in the law, and soon eject it."
