The Search (Posted on 2011-05-10) Difficulty: 3 of 5
I appreciate you helping me with the party. Everyone will be gathered for a festive do. I have planned a few guests as follows:

Windsor and Blarney Dunn
James and Henry Forge
Leo and John Paul Gait
Mary and Elizabeth Bait

The ballroom is 8 by 8 meters and decorated with black and white. I plan on filling the ballroom with these songs in order: "Courage Action Virtue", "A Base of Rebuke", "Boyhood of Gifts", "Charm", "Dear Inquiry Be". My friends Mary and Elizabeth will be near the south entrance, but I care there are safe places as well.

The guest list isn't complete though -- I'm searching for one more person.
Whom should I invite?

I'm really enjoying staring at this puzzle over and over again, but I don't seem to be making any headway.

The fact that there are five song titles -- and the fact that two of them seemed to be grouped together without a comma in between -- makes me think of the point values assigned to chess pieces:

Queen - 9
Castle - 5
Bishop - 3
Knight - 3
Pawn - 1

But now we've got pawns involved and no kings. And I still have no idea what the titles might actually mean. Anyone else got anything?
