Dear collective wisdom,

For a unit on rhythm, meter, and text setting, I am on the looking for examples of especially awful text setting—that is, mis-matches between poetic scansion and the musical rhythm that are especially jarring or awkward.

While we will enjoy seeing these sent on the list, I promise also to produce a collated list—perhaps we can have a contest(!)

All best, and thanks in advance,
Justin London
