Rebecca has tagged me with the latest incarnation of the “find the nearest book” meme. I’m pretty sure I’ve done this once before, but here goes again.
Erm, the nearest book is actually a London A-Z. Page 123 covers Streatham Vale and Mitcham Common. Hey, there’s a place called Lonesome. Well, that’s South London for you. The second nearest book is a vocal score for the B Minor Mass (Bärenreiter edition). Page 123 of that is from the second movement of the Credo.
The nearest book with any actual sentences in it is Ligeti in Conversation:
S. [Claude Samuel] In any case, as far as Le Grand Macabre is concerned, the verdict has already been pronounced. Does it make you want to carry on?
L. [Ligeti] Yes.
