Too Dreadful a Practice for this Open Air

from Assassin's Creed: Syndicate 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.


"In our deep vaulted cell, the charm we'll prepare, too dreadful a practice for this open air

- from Act I, No. 20, chorus "In our deep vaulted cell."


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