Quandary Resolution 3421
lissotrichous, dovecote, dulcet, canticle

Flembard the Crooner, the lissotrichous 16th-century tenor whose skill at "flexing the golden pipes" was rivaled only by his utter madness, was fond of clambering to the top of the tallest dovecote he could find and, in a voice as soft and dulcet as the feathers of the very birds who roosted beneath him, belt out canticles and hymns 24/7, until at last exhaustion brought him tumbling from his perch to the earth far below (which is how he eventually met his demise, or so the story goes).
