Ozzy Osbourne and Willa Cather

"The old people who couldn't read could 'hear the words' when Lizzie sang. Neither could Lizzie read, but she knew the hymns by heart. Mr. Fairhead often wondered how it was that she sounded the letter 'r' clearly when she sang, though she didn't when she talked."

Willa Cather, Sapphira and the Slave Girl, pp. 78-9.
