It is my pleasure to be able to upload "Danse macabre" by my good friend and our member Roman Bissinger.

Roman has uploaded a video with performance, and I take these notes from his description: "The Dance of Death (French: Danse Macabre) firstly appeared in the 14th century and its purpose was to portray the power of death over life. Visually it is mostly represented as a circular dance where death courts the living. As a skeleton the death plays instruments, dresses up in costume and mocks his contemporaries. He often attires himself with articles worn by current persons of standing. E.g. cardinals hat, fool's cap or a nuns veil. Either as life sized paintings on church walls, or paintings adorning cemetery walls with anything up to 80 meters in length, he reminds the faithful, admonishingly, of their own mortality. As a musical motif the Dance of Death has been found in numerous musical settings and is as such widely distributed."

I chose the Armley Schulze since I felt that its dark and mysterious sounds really went with the music.

I hope you will enjoy this performance, and ask you to please share your congratulations and approval with Roman.

Incidentally, I attached a photo of him (not in costume!) below! :-)

BRAVO and THANKS, Roman!
