Vivienne was never the appropriate name for my violin. While in look and feel she does approximate a Vivienne, she definitely doesn't sound like one. I knew it all along. But I didn't have half the heart to break yours.
Secretly, I've always called her Cecilia and that's what she feels like. It's like every time I miss a note, I can imagine a callout bubble coming out of my head, and inside it Art and Paul going

 'you're breaking my heart
you're shaking my confidence daily'

And every time I get the cello intro of 'Volcano' right, they go

'Jubilations! She loves again'

But I still can't play Lux Aeterna.

'someday maybe
who knows baby'
