Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 3068
oenophile, sixth sense, Lammas, melismatic

'Twas Lammas, and as if by some sixth sense I understood that the oenophiles, their goblets overflowing with ruby-red vintage, were going to sing this day--sing, aye, as they had never sung before: which would not have been so bad, except they were going to do it in that incredibly annoying overly-melismatic R&B style, leaping and diving erratically up and down the vocal register like the lines of a seismograph, a style which invariably gives me a headache.
