Classical Sunday: Scary Hodge-Podge

Allhallowtide is here!

9 comments

Believe it or not, people have put up “scary classical music compilations”, and we picked one from a channel we frequently refer to.

So this week, rather than listening to one nice tragic requiem for the occasion, you will hear a snipped from many (refer to list below).

Wishing you all a decently spooky Allhallowtide!

Halloween or Hallowe’en is a celebration observed in a number of countries on 31 October, the eve of the Western Christian feast of All Hallows’ Day.  It begins the three-day observance of Allhallowtide, the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), martyrs, and all the faithful departed.
