My score:

"You scored 43 out of a possible 74
Not bad at all - a decent Handel on the material."

Well, the quiz was about many other things besides music! :)

It's Mir ist so wunderbar. Sheesh, can't they get anything right?

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.

I only got 40 but will now listen to the operas of Donizetti in a new light.

Well, I finally took the thing, and assume I did better than 50%, but I couldn't get a score upon submitting, just an ad for the Manchester Guardian. I'm not going to go through it again, and pretty obviously it is nothing for high school students.

My jaw dropped when I learned my score - 45. I consider that pretty good for someone whose knowlege of classical music prior to June 2005 was non existent. I did make quite a few lucky guesses though.

You scored 46 out of a possible 74
Bizet does it! Brilliantly done. You're a winner.

It would be interesting to see some of the answers.

48 with the same Bizet comment. Why can't you see the answers? I did.

I scored 41. I knew some of the answers, but a lot of it was guessing.

59 out 74... I am a very trivial person and guessed lucky a lot.

Strange quiz I do agree.
