I was always told that 3rd February was the day the music died. [Thanks Don.] But I only discovered a few weeks ago that it is also the day that Felix Mendelssohn was born 200 hundred years ago in 1809.
Now I like Buddy Holly's music very much, but I do think Mendelssohn eclipses him somewhat. I hope to remember that this is his birthday from now on.
Wedding March, anyone?
