Quandary Resolution 3864
adulate, chiaroscuro, divertissement, volant

 

Every summer, the townsfolk would gather at the great estate for a celebration of the arts, which always included a tour of Lord Wemberly’s collection of chiaroscuro masterpieces, various musical divertissements in song and dance, with the Lady Anne’s long, lovely digits volant on the keyboard of the pianoforte accompaniments, and the ever amusing performance of Miss Kisbut the spinster seamstress who would adulate in sotto voce prior to the beginning of each segment, which – without fail – would result in someone from the audience falling off the edge of her chair as she leaned forward to listen.
