Bringer of War

Recovering emotionally from the results of the U.S. election,  I figure it’s a good time to turn attention to some appropriate “doomsday” music.

Various bombastic movie scores might do, Desplat’s Godzilla, for instance.  I’m sure there are tons of options given the popularity of apocalyptic and dystopian films.

However, as I write this I’m listening to Holst’s “Mars: The Bringer of War” from The Planets, Op. 32 suite for orchestra.  It is totally fitting.
