Mood Music for All Souls’ Day…

…which technically was yesterday, but its observance was transferred to today–at least in some places. Others observed it yesterday, and, really, I just got too confused.

This year I also thought I’d share this documentary on the Dies Irae and how it has influenced other music as well. You can hear bits of the Dies Irae in songs from such movies as Star Wars, It’s a Wonderful Life, and The Exorcist (now there’s an eclectic collection for you).
