A Different Kind Of Fantasy

My last entry reminded me of something I'd forgotten:

Back when I still had a record collection, one of my records was entitled Purcell's Fantasies for Viols. Given that a sonata for piano is exactly the same thing as a piano sonata, I always thought the publisher should have titled it Purcell's Viol Fantasies to gladden the hearts of those of us who love bad puns.
