Dead Can Dance - Hymn for the Fallen (live)

Here is Dead Can Dance doing "Hymn for the Fallen" from their 2005 tour. The song was officially unreleased at the time and later showed up, under a different title ("Sleep") on Lisa Gerrard's third solo album, The Black Opal (2009). Not sure what it's about but it has a dreamy quality to it, and sounds unusual for Dead Can Dance (or Gerrard's solo career) in that the idiom is more the classic American songbook rather than the world music-types stuff she's known for.
