SINGING NUNS

by Magna

2: She starred as Deloris Wilson, Deloris Van Cartier, and Sister Mary Clarence, the last while posing as a convent's choir conductor.

4: In reality, she was governess and later stepmother to Rupert, Hedwig, Johanna, Martina, Werner, Agatha, and Maria - not those kids in the movie.

6: In Poulenc's Dialogues of the Carmelites, the nuns sing "Salve Regina" as they line up one by one to be executed by this method.

8: In this 1985 musical comedy, tainted vichysoisse claims the lives of 52 nuns.

10: Film in which Sidney Poitier portrays handyman Homer Smith, who builds three East German nuns a chapel and teaches them to sing "Amen."

REALLY, REALLY ANCIENT LITERATURE

3: The Victory Stele of Mernepteh, king of this country during the 19th Dynasty, recounts his victories over Libyan invaders.

6: One of the oldest instances of Hebrew poetry is the song of this sister of Moses, recorded in Exodus 15.

9: This four-letter Sanskrit word for “knowledge” follows Rig, Sama, Yajur, and Atharva in the names of Hindu sacred texts.

12: In Ahunavaithi Gatha, he wrote, “I approach you with good thought, O Mazda Ahura, so that you may grant me two existences.”

15: The oldest known Indo-European text was written in cuneiform script by King Anitta of Kusara, a ruler of these people who lived in Anatolia early in the second millennium BC.
