The Effect on Music and Art
"The Dance of Death"by Hans Holbein the Younger
     Before the Black Death, music was happy
and frequently heard. During the Black Death
music was played very grimly or never played at
all. The only exceptions were people who decided
that since they were going to die anyway, they
might as well spend the rest of their life in
happiness. The somber change in art and music
demonstrated the grim reality of the world around
them.
