- Furthermore... most religious "classical music" pieces like Masses, requiems
etc. were builded on Gregorian/Melismatic melodies (Bach's Magnificat,
Mozart's requiem, Haendel's Dixit Dominus...etc).
In "Les Essais" Montaigne say aproximately (I don't remember the exact
quote) that, once integrated into its own concept, a thinker/writer can call
his own another one's idea or quote. I firmly think this is/should be true
for Music and art too (and if we were not so hypocritical we'd see its

There's a piece by Stockhausen I'd be appalled if I had to actually cite
by name ;-). Mind you, Beethoven had fun with anthems in Wellington's
Victory 1.5 century earlier ... I'm sure there are other uses of
patriotic themes (oh wait, Ives, duh).
The most startling intrusion I can think of -- it works just a sample,
in fact most like a "cut-in" record -- is the quotation from a Beethoven
sonata (I think it's from the prelude to the 4th movement of the
