This package is missing a dependency on "python-cairo". After installing solfege using `pacman -S solfege` running it results in a crash with message "ModuleNotFoundError: No module named 'cairo'". I attached the complete traceback as an attachment. Manually installing "python-cairo" using pacman makes solfege work.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Make sure "python-cairo" isn't already installed on your system (`pacman -Q python-cairo`)
2. Install solfege (`pacman -S solfege`)
3. Run `solfege`
This task depends upon

@freundTech: Thanks for the report! I'll look into this.
Sadly, solfege is not a very straight forward python project and upstream is sort of dead. It's easy to miss things.
