cor anglais

minor
I thought of MINOR (because it sounds like miner) but I couldn't see the link to 'darker place'. But maybe it's a musical reference again and I know nothing about music terms
a piece of music in a minor key can be described as 'dark'
Thanks for the explanation
Question Author
Thank you both. Still thinking about the `pitman` association though.
Another one: It`s unusual for quiet British choir to produce pipe music.(7).
E.R.`s nonconformist composition. (8,8).
Thanks for any suggestions.
Pibroch
Bohemian Rhapsody.

Thank you MarkRae. I haven`t heard of pibroch so I`ll have to `google` it.
Pibroch is the "easy, simplified, Sassenach" way of spelling the Gaelic word piobaireachd :-) But then that wouldn't fit in the quiz!
Q: What do you get if you drop a piano down a mineshaft?

A: A flat minor.

(I don't know how to write the musical flat sign)
