Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3067
oenophile, sixth sense, Lammas, melismatic


Maybe it's my uncanny sixth sense, but somehow I just knew that you must be a pagan oenophile the moment I saw you sniffing and spitting out the communion wine the Sunday after Lammas Day when we'd all gathered to bless the harvest, and when - all too obviously not knowing the words - you'd rendered 'We Plow the Fields and Scatter' as one long yawning melisma.
