Danse Macabre

The Danse Macabre - Saint Saens; This is my treat to you all for a Happy Halloween ~
The Danse Macabre is a medieval allegory of the universal nature of death. According to the legend, the Grim Reaper calls the souls and skeletons of the dead from their graves at midnight every year on All Hallows’ Eve / Halloween, to lead them in dance and merriment, from strike of midnight until break of dawn. Following on from even older traditions of the deceased visiting the world at this time, in the later medieval period this was another way of softening the harsh realities of life and death, providing people with the belief that death was in fact part of a greater spiritual whole.

This music amazes me at how scary it is, yet at the same time has an exillerating joyfulness about it. I was looking through the videos to find an animated version of this music but nothing quite hit the spot for me, most being too gruesome or horrific and so - suddenly inspired, I sat up half the night filming this version.
