Ataraxia - 'Al Ballo Masquerato'

When the Italian neoclassical/gothic/folk/darkwave musicians Ataraxia released 'Il Fantasma dell'Opera' on Avantgarde Music in 1996, it brought them a little more attention from metal folk. Francesca Nicoli had recently helped out on MonumentuM's 'In Absentia Christi' opus, and her heavenly soprano on 'Al Ballo Masquerato' never fails to tug the heartstrings. Though the song could have benefitted from a genuine string accompaniment in place of synth, its melody combines sprightly grace with the faint taste of melancholy.

Elsewhere, the eerie, gothic cover of Kate Bush's 'Wuthering Heights' ('La Nouva Marguerita') isn't bad either.
