"And close your eyes with holy dread..."

Went to the symphony this weekend. Heard the Berlioz below. Had a thought/association: What do these three musics have in common? [And 'Romanticism', though a good and fairly accurate response, is too general and vague.]

There are no prizes other than the pride in your own knowledge base you will feel at having correctly divined the answer. And isn't that enough?
