A small snippet of Bach's "Toccata and Fugue in D Minor" which I played on the church organ at All Saints, Witley, England. Classically used in horror movies, this piece pretty much became synonymous with Halloween and Dracula.

    Hi InspectorJ, thank you for sharing this sound!! It's perfect for setting a gothic mood. I used it in a Dracula/Barbie podfic (basically recording a fanfiction read out loud, kind of like an audiobook for fanfiction). You can see the work here: https://archiveofourown.org/works/40253121. I used it at the very beginning and very end to help set the mood and close it out.

    Sounds amazing! I'm still a bit unsure whether this will make it, but I'm considering making some use for this clip in a game 'Fear & Hunger 2: Termina'

    I'll check out you Sound Libraries too out of curiosity.

    Thanks again for uploading this here!
