The obscure word of the week is canorous

This week’s obscure English word is canorous.

It’s a word deriving from the seventeenth century meaning ‘melodious’. I have to say it. ‘Bach’s canorous cantatas aren’t canned but the cantankerous choir can do the cancan.’

Your challenge: write a sentence or two in the comments – and maybe without my execrable alliteration – using this word.
