“on referring to my notes” [REIG]  

Long-time students of Sherlock Holmes might think that Guy Warrack covered all there was to say in his 1947 classic Sherlock Holmes and Music. But longtime listeners of I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere know that there’s always something more to be discovered or said.

Alexander Katz, BSI (“Sarasate”) and Karen Wilson, BSI (“Bartholomew Wilson”) have edited the latest volume in the BSI Press Professions series that focuses on music. Called Referring to My Notes: Music and the Sherlockian Canon, the volume covers everything from Holmes’s own violin to Irene Adler, music in the time of Sherlock Holmes, music inspired by Sherlock Holmes, and more.

The Canonical Couplet follows the interview: we give you two lines of poetry, and you need to identify which Sherlock Holmes story they represent. The winner will get some archival material from the IHOSE vaults.
