Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 4, Day 5

Post by DadofTwins »

Today's game is below.

Note the RQ from R4D2. The capital of Sicily is Palermo, but the strait is the Strait of Messina. If you gave Messina, you already got the points. Otherwise, play the RQ.

Good luck.

RQ Baffin
2. Koran
4. Book of Mormon
6. Septuagint
8. Veda

10. Bahai. Title is in Arabic, so is not Zoroastrian; nor is it the Koran, which is called "Koran", therefore Bahai (I think)

3. Fantasia
6. John Williams
9. Yehudi Menuhin (Odessa boy)
12. NBC orchestra
15. clam. I'm thinking the drum and bugle corps or the Army band. The national symphony is much later, I think.
