Walpurgisnacht, the European equivalent of Halloween, is celebrated on the night of 30 April - just before the arrival of Spring on May Day. This festival certainly has roots in ancient pagan traditions, but as with all the other pagan holidays, the Christians usurped it and turned it into their own holiday - the celebration of Saint Walpurga, a niece of St. Boniface.

The traditional story of Walpurgisnacht is that every witch meets on the Brocken, a specific area of the Harz mountains, for a night of revelry and cavorting with other spirits and specters.

Today, Walpurgisnacht is often a night of bonfires and vandalism - similar to Devil’s Night in Detroit.

Parts for Euphonium Treble Clef, Cello, and String Bass are available on request.
