The music motif crossword is finally here

9 August 2016, 18:00

Yes, we made one. And it's fiendish.

Last week you loved the musical Sudoku that we posted on Facebook - so we thought we'd take it to the next level with this musical motif crossword. A word of warning, you might have to dive into your score/book/record collection, because this is HARD (but we know you’re up to it).

Give it a go below – there are two options (so you can fill in the answers with notes or letters), depending on your preference. And make sure you let us know how you get on!

All themes are in their original keys, but everything is in the treble clef just to make it a little simpler. Also there may be the odd enharmonic equivalent.

Here's our version with staves - click for a bigger view (and see below for the stave-free version)
