And again with Debussy...


... in my opinion his music for Le Martyre de Saint Sebastiane is vastly underrated.  It contains some of the most mystical, ethereal music written by the composer combined with a half-veiled eroticism which is highly captivating.

               

In it's shorter form rather than the original 4 hour version, the use of a narrator as the Saint paints an rather homo-erotic and sado-masochistic picture of Sebastiane's suffering at the hands of his beloved archers.

Don't let that scare you though, it's charged with a mysticism hard to resist.
