Dante’s PURGATORY, Canto 8: twilight music






Much music is here

“Before the End of the Light”

Eyes focus on prize


NOTE: No music was in the Inferno, but much religious music is here because it helps repentant sinners focus on the prize that is salvation. As night approaches, the repentant sinners sing “Before the End of the Light” and ask God to keep them safe during the night.
