Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 1298
McKenzie, sans, callithump, threnody
The transition from the joyful callithump of the parade to the soprano's mournful threnody for war dead, sans intermezzo, was too much for me and I lost my composure, tried to gag the soprano, and am now in jail hoping that my cousin will serve as a McKenzie adviser in my trial tomorrow.
