: Danse Macabre

"Snap-apple night" painted by Daniel Maclise in 1833 Wikimedia Commons

Picture Death playing his malevolent fiddle in the graveyard on Halloween night. The skeletons rise and do their annual clattering dance until the sun comes up next morning. It's Halloween...get into the spirit with the Danse Macabre by Camille Saint-Saens.
