Holst's trombone induces sheep birth

 We all know the power of the mighty trombone.  Noble, inspiring, breathtaking, the trombone has inspired generations of humans to great things.  Einstein listened to the "Tuba Mirum" from Mozart's Requiem when he finalized the theory of relativity.  Joyce played recordings of Bruckner while he wrote Ulysses.  Al Gore went to a Chicago concert right before he invented the Internet.
