I'll have to look up the word vicar (sp?) I know it as a cleric and pronounced differently.

No, I'm afraid not. It was used twice. If I remember correctly it was part of the discussion where the young Beethoven served on 'probation' and was seen a bit as a marvel while the organ master was away. Ludwig at the harpsichord for the opera rehearsals? It just struck me as strange. I assume(d) there is another use of the word.
E agora, José?

You know, it may come from the Latin 'vice.' He---Ludwig---was serving as a designated replacement.

That doesn't help with the English pronunciation, though.

Nothing can help my pronunciation.

They are at 7:58 and 8:08. I see you marked it as PL OK, but I'm going to correct those two later on today, anyway.

I'll lose sleep if I don't.

Good call. You can always show off and use the voiced bilabial non-sibilant fricative.

PL OK!
