Halloween Classics

Halloween is the season that brings forth images of ghosts and goblins and things that go bump in the night. Submitted for your approval are three classic tales that have become synonymous with the holiday of the macabre. Return to 18th century Sleepy Hollow, as the schoolmaster, Ichabod  Crane is confronted by the Headless Horseman, in the Washington Irving classic The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.  Permit the master of the macabre, Edgar Allan Poe to transport you to a party of noblemen and women who have locked themselves away from the plague that lies without only to be met by The Masque of the Red Death. Enter Poe’s chamber as he is mocked by an unwelcome guest in his classic poem, The Raven. Read by Myron Hieronymous Thomas.
