The talk is interrupted by the insertion of the live performances of the following songs: Amour de moi (Medieval French song) ; Erlkönig / music by Schubert ; words set on Goethe's poem ; Bird and the beast / music by Dougherty ; words based on Gowers' essay ; Azulão (Blue bird) / by Jayme Ovalle ; Come ready and see me / by Hundley ; I rise when you enter / by Chanler.
