The Mozart piece “Ave Verum Corpus” figures subtly in the creepy new BBC America Series “Intruders,” which unravels a conspiracy about people who have achieved immortality by emerging in the bodies of others.
Imagine how creeped out I was when I picked up the Stile Antico album I had borrowed from my public library and discovered the first track was “Ave Verum Corpus.”
