Many English words are related to Latin, amongst the best known are those from when Caesar first saw the Britons and declared "weeny, weedy, weaky".

Last night was my regular Thursday evening orchestra. We don't do concerts as we have gaps in the orchestra so not practical, but we rehearse a 'programme' for about 6 or 7 weeks, then change to a new set of music. This half term we have a couple of short pieces by Mussorgsky and Grieg, Schubert symphony #2 and Mendelssohn's Hebrides overture (aka "Fingal's Cave").
The Mendelssohn is a marvellous piece, written by him during a visit to Scotland, but the string writing, including the cello line, is fiendish.

Add 3 more sharps to the key signature and then play it on the bari sax just as if it is written in the treble clef.
I had to do that in summer school - was given a bassoon part to play on bari, and bizarrely I had to do the opposite of playing an Eb bass part on cello, so add 3 flats and read as if in bass... accidentals get messy
