I never heard that about Beethoven. Franz Liszt, maybe, but not Ludwig 
Van. ;)

Btw, it may interest some to know that the Amish consider instruments a 
worldly vanity. No instruments are used in their music, which is 
virtually all church music. A friend here who visits Amish country 
regularly tells me that everyone in an Amish family sings, and as far as 
he could tell they all sing quite nicely. He said that their 
entertainments often took the form of after-meal family singing.

Would that more of us might do likewise... :)
