Book Review: A Musician's Dictionary, by David W Barber (and cartoons by Dave Donald)
The style of this book is very much that of 1066 And All That, with its schoolboy humour:
Variation: The sort of tune written by composers who can never make up their minds.

occasional drifts into Pseud's Corner:
Exposition: In a fugue, the exposition is the musical equivalent of having wallpaper that matches the furniture.

and some that are just brilliant:
Glissando: The musical equivalent of stepping on a banana peel.
