The Dance of Death, by Hans Holbein


The Canon, or Prebendary

Der Domherr.

Ecce appropinquat hora. — Mat. xxvi.

The Canon, with his falconer, page, and jester, enters the church door. Death shows him that his sands have run.

Tu uas au choeur dire tes heures

Paiant Dieu pour toy, & ton proche.

Mais il fault ores que tu meures.

Voy tu pas l’heure qui approche?
