Classical Music for Halloween


Shattered Roses

The following is a suggested playlist of classical music that goes well for Halloween, not to mention Wraith games. The list has been designed so that the songs blend into one another, instead of jarring from piece to piece.

If you're stumped as to how to score some of these pieces, a good deal of the playlist will be on the Halloween update of The London Underground, which is Hollow Dreams.Net's IC radio station, starting on October 23rd.
