Classical Sunday: Classical Music for Zodiac Signs

Is the music chosen for your sign your favorite in this collection?

Yes, we are a bit early with this.  More properly it should be posted on the Sunday before the vernal equinox (on March 20th), and consequently, the collection starts with Aries.  But since we are so used to viewing January 1st as the beginning of a new annual cycle, maybe you can enjoy this little offering at this time of year as well.

Classical Sunday: Scary Hodge-Podge

Allhallowtide is here!

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.
