(Katie tagged me and the other Whapsters for this over a month ago--mea culpa for not responding sooner!)
Step 1: Get your playlist (or iTunes library) together, put it on random, and play.
Step 2: Write down the first line from the first 20 songs that play or close to it.
Step 3: Post and let your readers guess what song the lines come from. (Title or Composer).
Step 4: Mark the songs when someone guesses correctly. (I've italicized them).
As this game does not suit itself fully to Early Music (I know I have bizarre musical tastes), you can also guess the album or group these things came from. Also, in cases when the text won't help at all (ie., the Agnus Dei), I've provided the date as a clue. And Googling is allowed. In fact, it'll probably have to be compulsory.
Not all of this is Early Music, though. Bear this in mind. I sometimes even listen to stuff written after 1792 when nobody's watching--thanks to my kind and patient friends who have endeavored long and hard to teach me about such things.
