I favor a single page synopsis or 'short form' -- enough to answer each
'question' briefly and show the judge you have done your homework (BTW,
the title can document name, date, country of origin, composer) --
followed by as many pages as needed expanded to fully explain the piece,
techniques, pronunciation -- whatever is appropriate.  Footnotes are
appropriate in the expanded section and a bibliography should be
included (try to find/use at least three sources -- though that is not
always possible).   By the way, I favor this form for *all* A & S
documentation.  If you like, I'll send a copy of my documentation to
_Vppon a deedmans hed_  to give you a more complete idea of what I mean.
 It's for a poem, but it should give you a good idea.

Amen and Amen
