    I have an interesting tidbit about the fifth movement.  Let's just say some hip hop artists are magnificent at sampling.  =)

    •  Are you thinking of Juelz Sanata? (2+ / 0-)

      I know he uses the Dies Irae, but is it Berlioz-specific?  I may be... I can't listen to it at work.

        Just listened to it... It's definitely got aspects of the Berlioz version rather than the original chant.

        The synth version reminds me of what Nas did with Carl Orff in "Hate Me Now."
