    The Sound of Music was actually written without benefit of transcription.

    Although, in fairness, Rogers and Hammerstein probably used some
    form of musical notation when writing the score.

    Some fairly brainy list members have suggested that the proper
    place for this thread is on the CLDR discussion list. Get it?

    Meanwhile, if The Sound of Music gets remade and Julie Andrews
    is unavailable for the lead, how about Britney Spears?
