OK, Bob —

For this I officially accuse you of picking nits! <G>

Seriously though, although it’s only one note, it does fit the category I mentioned. It’s not an uninterrupted aria.

Next topic: what would we call a section of a duet that’s longer than a few lines? Again I draw on Puccini for my example: In the Tosca Act I duet there are two such instances. Mario sings “O dolci mani” and Tosca sings “Non la sospiri, la nostra casetta?” Are these examples of the arietta?
