    We have plenty of ties, but the Fauré Requiem stands alone at the top of our list.

    The top ten pieces to groove to when in the dead zone:

    1. Fauré - Requiem

    2. Bach - St. Matthew Passion
    2. Suk - Asrael Symphony

    4. Mahler - Symphony no. 2 "Resurrection"
    4. Mahler - Kindertotenlieder
    4. Rachmaninov - Isle of the Dead

    7. Schubert - String Quartet no. 14 in D minor "Death and the Maiden"
    8. Beethoven - 2nd Movement "Funeral March" (from Symphony no. 3 "Eroica")

    9. Berg - Violin concerto "To the memory of an angel"
    9. Shostakovich - String Quartet no. 8

    I'm a little disappointed that Metamorphosen did not make the final cut, but my other favorites did quite well.

    I will be thinking of other themes for game purposes, and any suggestions would be appreciated.

    It does add up, but the dark side is so interesting.
