Meddling with Medleys
In music, a medley consists of a number of different melodies presented one after the other within the same continuous piece of music.
An example of this is often found in opera overtures, where the composer introduces the various melodies to be heard individually as the opera progresses. The term comes from Middle English and literally means “to meddle.”
