Welcome to C Minor Mastery Quiz 2. We put it in a separate browser window to make it easier for you to refer back to any page on the site as you answer the questions. Each correct answer will earn the point value shown.

Then, for extra fun and oodles of potential bonus points, type in the funniest response you can think of to the "You Were There" question at the end. Please remember that all bonus points will be awarded immediately following the deadline for all entries, which is January 8th. See the Official Rules for details.

You'll be asked to enter your name or initials or a nickname. That's not mandatory. We would simply like to give you personal credit if any of your gems of wit make it to the "Funniest Entries To Date" portion of the Leader Board page. After all, a pair of free tickets to our concert is pretty nice, but nothing compares with glory and the envy of others now, does it?

And if you haven't yet subscribed to our C Minor Mastery newsletter, there's no better time than now. (Yet another window opens up, so you won't lose your place.) As a subscriber, you'll get each chapter presented right there in your inbox, so you won't run the risk of forgetting to play a round.

And whatever you do, don't forget to buy your advance tickets early! Sales are brisk, and you'll get mighty cold trying listen to our concert from outside the White Plains Presbyterian Church in the middle of January. The stained glass windows don't open, either.

Have fun and good luck!

It's January 1782. Leopold was so livid upon hearing about Frau Weber's marriage contract that he suggested to Wolfgang that she be put in chains, forced to sweep streets and carry a placard around her neck inscribed with the words "Seducer of Youth."

That's pretty strong stuff, but maybe not strong enough.

If you were judge and jury, what punishment would you mete out?
