4. Not like old days 8. Almost twice daily
A. Greg cycles to college every day. The college is in the town centre but it has a bike park where you can leave your bicycle. Because many bikes have been stolen, Greg now has a daily ritual of carefully chaining the bike to a stand and locking each of the wheels. Then he removes the handlebar and saddle and locks them separately in a cabinet in the college.
B. Martin works for a posh “take away” restaurant called “Meals on wheels”. Every evening he has to put on a suit and by car, deliver a three course meal plus wine to rich people around the city. It is almost, Martin thinks, like being a butler or servant a hundred years ago. Except that he has three different “masters” every day. He thinks the restaurant should be called “Servants on Wheels”.
C. Locking up, Sasha reflected, was the worst possible responsibility. She was supposed to arrive at the restaurant at 4pm and officially she was supposed to finish at midnight when the restaurant closed, but she was the key holder and therefore always the last person to leave. Often this kept her there every night until lam or even later. At least she was paid a little extra for this but not enough — in her view!
D. Charlotte spends about 30 minutes every day writing her private diary. She has maintained this discipline since she was a teenager. Even if nothing particularly noteworthy has happened, she likes to record her impressions of people and conversations. She writes with a pen and has a complete book for every year since she started. These are safely locked away and considered by Charlotte to be her most valued possessions.
E. John walks to school every day — not because he has to, but because he enjoys it. It is about 2kms across some orchards, over the bridge and then just a short walk to the edge of town where the school is situated. Of course he can go by bus if the weather is exceptionally bad — and he always uses the bus to get home. But it is a pretty walk and an excellent way to start the day.
F. When Louise was a young girl growing up in Scotland — her family never used to lock the door. There was no crime in her village and visitors were always welcome. Now she has to lock up every night and secure all the windows. If a visitor comes she has a “spy hole” to check who it is before answering. Modern life in the city, she felt, was a different world to the one she grew up in.
G. Emma loves her dog. His name is Arnie, he is two years old and absolutely full of fun. But she has to take him out for a proper walk before and after school. She enjoys this but yet Emma hates getting up early in the morning and it is always a struggle for her, especially in the winter when it is still dark in the mornings. Sometimes her Mum helps and Emma is grateful beyond words.

A lesson with the Master
Joseph Knecht must have been twelve or thirteen years old at the time. For quite a while he had been a scholarship pupil in the Latin school of Berolfingen. His teachers at the school, and especially his music teacher, had already recommended him two or three times to the highest Board for admission into the elite schools… His music teacher, from whom he was learning violin and the lute, told him that the Music Master would shortly be coming to Berolf ingen to inspect music instruction at the school. Therefore Joseph must practice like a good boy and not embarrass his teacher.
“What would you like to play?” — the Master asked. The boy could not say a word. Hesitantly, he picked up his exercise book and held it out to the Master. “No,” the Master said, “I want you to play from memory and not an exercise, something easy that you know by heart.” Knecht was confused and unable to answer. The Master did not insist. With one finger, he struck the first notes of a melody, and looked -questioningly at the boy. Joseph nodded and at once played the melody with pleasure.
Once more, the Master said. Knecht repeated the melody, and the old man now played a second voice to go with it. Once more. Knecht played, and the Master flayed the second part, and a third part also. Once more. And the Master played three voices along with the melody… The boy and the old man ceased to think of anything else; they surrendered themselves to the lovely, congenial lines and figurations they formed as their parts crisscrossed. Caught in the network their music was creating, they swayed gently along with it, obeying an unseen conductor…
“Do you happen to know what a fugue is?” — the Master now asked. Knecht looked dubious. “Very well,” the Master said, “then I’ll show you. You’ll grasp it quicker if we make a fugue ourselves. Now the first thing you need in a fugue is a theme, and we don t have to look far for the theme. We’ll take it from our song”. He played a brief phrase, a fragment of the song’s melody. He played the theme once more, and this time he went to the first entrance and then to the second entrance. He changed the interval, then the third entrance repeated the first one again an octave higher, as did the fourth with the second. The exposition concluded with a cadence in the key of the dominant.
The boy looked at the player’s clever white fingers… His ear drank in the fugue; it seemed to him that he was hearing music for the first time in his life. Behind the music being created in his presence he sensed the world of Mind, the joy-giving harmony of law and freedom, of service and rule. He surrendered himself, and vowed to serve that world. In those few minutes he saw himself and his life, saw the whole cosmos guided, ordered, and interpreted by the spirit of music…
He had experienced his vocation, which may surely be spoken of as a sacrament. The ideal world had suddenly taken on visible lineaments for him. Its gates had opened invitingly… And through this venerable messenger — the Music Master — an admonition and a call had come from that world even to him, the insignificant Latin school pupil.
| 12 | School that Joseph Knecht studied at was

1) not able to play music from memory.
2) not articulate enough to answer the question.
3) too self-conscious, uncertain in his technical skills.
4) too nervous.
15 | The Master started playing the melody with the boy because he wanted to
1) check the boy’s ability for improvisation.
2) warm the boy up and reduce his tension.
3) show him the correct way to play it.
4) demonstrate his technical superiority.
16 1 Explaining to Knecht what a fugue was, the Master
. 1) spontaneously created the needed piece on a well-known simple melody.
2) created a fugue, inviting the boy to participate in the improvisation.
3) improvised a fugue on the melody of the exercise they have just played.
4) played a well known fugue of Bach, based on the melody of the song.

1) where music alone reigned supreme.
2) of sacred service and self — sacrifice.
3) based on the interdependence of regularities and freedoms.
4) created by improvisation and free will of a Master.

1) understand his strong points and weaknesses.
2) widen his academic horizons.
3) mature and get ready for a real life.
4) choose a profession.
