Great Minds Against Themselves Conspire

from by Austin Wintory


Soprano soloist: Holly Sedillos

The lyrics are from Henry Purcell's opera DIDO & AENEAS, libretto by Nahum Tate. Purcell's actual music was not used, or even (intentionally) referenced. Simply the libretto itself.


"Great minds against themselves conspire, and shun the cure they most desire."

- from Act III, No. 35, chorus "Great minds against themselves conspire."


from Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, released October 23, 2015
