His Grace, the Archbishop is agreed that Wolfie will replace our dear, departed Adlgasser as court organist. His sudden death, mid chord, so to speak, is a strange blessing since Wolfie is the finest player in Europe.
The pity is he hates the archbishop and Salzburg in equal parts. What to do? Swallow his misery for a short while and stay here to comfort Papa? Why yes. Our father is even MORE distressed than Wolfie because his good friend, Lorenz Hagenauer has also died unexpectedly. The Lord has received three in one year - I will now pray for Mama, Adlgasser and Herr Hagenauer. There is never a good time for those you love to die. Back to my opera:
'Out damned spot! Out I say.' N.
