Mercoledi Musicale – All Hallows’ Eve

And what could be more appropriate for All Hallows’ Eve than the Lyke-Wake Dirge as eerily – dare I say creepily? –  sung by Buffy Sainte-Marie in a setting by Benjamin Britten – two names I never thought I’d type in the same sentence.

31 October – 1917: World War I: Battle of Beersheba – “last successful cavalry charge in history”.
