Can someone help me with the name of a musical composition?

You've all heard it; it's a doleful tune. I think it may be classical.

Probably a funeral dirge.

Once a cartoon used the music and set these word to it: "Out of the north like an icy, icy wind."

Anybody know the name of this composition?

1. Probably Chopin's Funeral March?

6. That's the first thing that came to my mind too. Glad it's
solved.
First time I ever heard it, forever ago, i was driving along the highway.
I had to pull over and really experience it, I almost cried.

5. True true. But by whomst? Charles Gounoud, of course.
French bon bons.
Lugubrious.
Ah, there is more, much more lugubrious than Chopin.
Carmina Burana?
Volga Boatmen?
Alexander Borodin? Polotsian dances. Without purporting to be funerary.
