I've been thinking that it would be suitable to have music where the composer and all the performers are dead. This is easy enough to find for a solo performance, but more challenging for groups and definitely harder for orchestras. Suggestions? Also a pagan collection with no obligation for anyone to be dead. Good collections of secular music for Halloween? This entry was posted at http://nancylebov.dreamwidth.org/1073779.html .
