Halloween with a Classical Theme!

>> Saturday, October 27, 2007

For the next five days I will be posting five of my favorite Halloween videos with classical music themes.

Today's video features a Medieval work from an ancient Latin text, Carmina Burana, entitled, "Come Dance With Me". Death sings to humanity saying that no one shall be spared. It speaks to the pre-occupation with death during this period in European history, as The Plague, or The Black Death, spread across the entire continent, killing over one third of the population.
