Pet Sounds: The NPR Music Critter Quiz

Since it’s Sunday, A to Z is on a break and it’s time for the quiz of the week.

This quiz is from Deceptive Cadence, an NPR blog hosted by Tom Huizenga.

Animals are fun to pet. They also make great guest appearances in music.

From as far back as we can tell, music makers have been inspired by the flora and especially the fauna around us. From tooting tunes on actual animal horns and bones, to musical portraits of creatures large and small, performers and composers of all stripes have included critters in their creations. In this puzzler, you must identify the creature depicted in the music. Score high and feel like you can “talk to the animals.” Score low and you’re in the doghouse.
