dies irae

These days before Halloween on the Eastern Seaboard might be confused as a day of judgment.  I think I’ve managed to escape the arrival of both in Salem, but a good storm nevertheless always puts me in the mood for the fury and passion of Verdi.

Compare his Dies Irae with the opening storm scene of Otello.
