Haha!  Wear the mask. how fitting.yap. and all of the alternates :PI want that "Final Confrontation" cue so much!Most of them are done actually and should have been released a while ago !Hybrid why is HZ scoring so many films lately, has he placed a bet with himself or something? lol<br><br>Looking forward to it. Boss Baby was a really fun score.
I'm confident he would care. Not saying he has any control over it. <br>I don't think Mondo should be making any money from this release. It ought to be canceled and removed from their website. <br><br>It's more than just a tempo issue. The tone is entirely off, and parts that were once pleasing to hear, now sound awful to my ears.<br><br>Seems Mondo is lacking the proper quality control. Hopefully this is a wake up call for them. If enough people avoid buying this album or return it, they'll get the message. I like to see capitalism work properly. <br>Maybe Pope is involved.Great news! The first one is fun, not Zimmer’s best animated score imo but it’s still pretty enjoyable. I almost wish they got Conrad Pope involved again, “Love” is one of the most beautiful cues of the past few years.The first one was quite pretty good.We knew Steve would return for quite some time, but I was surprised Hans would actually return too. But he's very involved with that one.
Who is Hans Zimmerman?i want it so much <3I guess it's only fair that they do shoulder the blame, considering again that releases like these aren't really the norm for them. I still wouldn't expect a recall and replacement, since it'd be a lot of money down the drain there. Their loss ultimately at the end of the day.<br><br>A bit disappointed about the content being the exact same as the leak, as I would've liked some of the film edits or at least the alt mixes I've seen pop up. I guess I'll just have to hope Disney does end up cooperating with LLL sooner than later.You gotta realize one thing, most of the time, Hans doesn't even know about these releases (and honestly I think he doesn't care). Only a few labels like LLL play ball and have him involved (but as Hans doesn't own most of his music, they have no other reason than courtesy to do so).<br><br>As for MI2, people who complained about the "content" instead of the tech aspect of it were goddamn wrong. Yes, the film mixes / OST mixes are pretty different. Because you have suites & sometimes material specifically arranged for the album or alternate cues.<br><br>Mondo having released the final mixes (and I know what Paramount provided them, it's just exactly the same 2 CD set copy that leaked years ago), I have no problem if the content is different.<br><br>And that's the topic on which they answered, James. Technically, they're not wrong, but they are ditching the REAL problem, for which they are responsible for ! The speed issue is on them, not on what they got.Considering the recent issues with the isolated score on Days of Thunder's 4K release sounding very inconsistent, I do wonder if Paramount has simply been poor in preserving stuff. Especially when they mention the studio and not the record label, which might've had a better copy on hand (they did finally put the OST on digital recently, after all).<br><br>I am not going to hold Mondo responsible for this, especially considering they normally do just press the regular OSTs onto LPs. I don't expect them to be fully privy to if a score sounds fine or not, since they're often just given the stuff prepared for them. Besides, repressing records would be a super expensive ordeal, especially with how limited they're often designed to be now.<br><br>And honestly: since no one has made the comparison to Sherlock 2 yet, how bad sounding is it really? I'd much rather it be slightly off than it being complete trash like the Perseverance release of Rain Man was. If HZ was able to let that slide once, then he won't be so worked up over a small tempo issue.
So this is what Mondo had to say about their massive screw up. I've never heard something so stupid in my life. If I had a direct line to Hans Zimmerman himself I'd call him about this. I'm sure he would be interested to know they butchered his album. <br><br>"Hi James,<br><br>I talked with the soundtracks department and here's what they had to say:<br><br>We’ve been made aware of a discrepancy between how the audio sounds on our album versus how it was previously released in original releases.<br><br>Our masters came directly from the studio and from original recording sessions, and we did not do any adjustments to the masters in post other than standard vinyl mastering process. But it seems any previous post production on those original releases, and cues used in the film itself, are absent from our release and may account for the differences you notice.<br><br>We currently do not have any plans on remastering the score."<br>Great. Thx.<br><br>Score has much similarities with Sherlock, so there is many of Lorne's cues...Known credits are Runaway Train for Mazzaro (was on his website), for Andrew K : The Rangers, Cannibal, Dead Rangers & Finish Him (on his Soundcloud). Geoff is the only guy with Ann Marie Simpson that got the privilege of cuesheet credit.
<br>
<br>Battle of Aughrim arrangement (so everything lifted from "Silver") is Hans & Ann Marie.
<br>
<br>Geoff did a good part of the score, every other classical pieces arrangements are his (so, everywhere the William Tell Overture appears). Train Chase, the End Credits, This Is A Robbery.
<br>
<br>The stuff that sounds more or less like Sherlock have definitely Lorne. And I suspect a bit more epic drama have RGW.Hello there!<br>Hybrid, do we have some composer's credits on this score?<br>Or this is situation like on Transformers score?<br><br>Somewhere I read that Geoff Zanelli helped Hans on Train Chase (pts 1&2), Mazzaro did Runaway Train and Kawczynski did like 2 or 3 tracks (the rangers, finish him). Is that correct?<br><br>btw good score, not genius, but pretty good action score.<br><br>Made in Italy<br><br>Beautiful new score by Alex Belcher, check it out!

Dear All
it is a very great job, ones of my favorite CD. I want ask something about Kyrie for Magdalene, this is in latin, but what words are spoken by the chorus? I recognize only the first: "Kyrie Eleison, Kryste Eleison, Kyrie Eleison".
thanks for help

anyone know the lyrics to the citrine cross? is it Trucidate, Occidite, Obtruncate, Iugulate?

I admit to never paying any real attention to movie scores. However Chevaliers De Sangreal was so moving it inspired me to get out of a serious depression because it actually helps me feel a Divine presence! It brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it and I am very grateful for it. Many blessings to all involved in its making!

robert langdon reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-16 00:00:00
can someone help me find out which tracks go where (i.e, for what scene?)

Skyler reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-16 00:00:00
This is a chronological version I made - In the movie some songs repeat more than once, so I arranged them by when they are most prominent. The track times are approximate, but they are pretty close. Also, I haven't seen the film for a while so some of this might not be entirely accurate. POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOLLOW

1. Dies Mercurii I Martius (0:00 - 1:30)
The opening credits music

2. The Paschal Spiral
The whipping scene with Silas

3. Dies Mercurii I Martius (1:30 - 2:33)
Sophie remembers her childhood

4. Fructus Gravis (1:38 - 2:49)
Langdon and Sophie escape from the Louvre

5. L'Esprit Des Gabriel
Langdon narrates as a crusades flashback progresses.
Part of this track was also used earlier when Langdon first enters the Louvre.

6. Rose of Arimathea (0:00 - 4:06)
Silas flashback and Opus Dei

7. Fructus Gravis (0:00 - 2:04)
Langdon and Sophie go to the bank and get the cryptex

8. Ad Arcana
Teabing explains everything to Sophie regarding the Holy Bloodline

9. Malleus Maleficarum
When Teabing explains about the persecution of women for allegedly being witches

10. Beneath Alrischa
Teabing, Langdon, Sophie, and Silas escape to England via plane.

11. Kyrie for the Magdalene
This was played for about ten seconds in the Cathedral

12. The Citrine Cross
The sequence culminating with Silas and Aringarosa getting shot.
This was also played during the smart car chase and during the Constantine/Roman flashback.

13. Dies Mercurii I Martius (2:34 - end)
When Teabing holds Sophie at gunpoint and when the cryptex is destroyed.

14. Daniel's 9th Cipher
Langdon and Sophie explore under Rosslyn Chapel

15. Rose of Arimathea (4:06 - end)
This wasn't in the film but essentially it's Sophie's theme and so I think it would be a great accompaniment to the scene when Langdon bids farewell to Sophie.

16. CheValiers des Sangreal
The ending sequence, obviously.

17. Poisened Chalice
End Credits.

18. Salvete Virgines
Not in the film.

I hope this helps!

I can see what Richard Harvey and Abhay Manusmare did, but what specific instances in the film (or CD) were composed by James Dooley, Nick Glennie-Smith, Lorne Balfe, or Blake Neely?

I think that's what Bondo is asking.

Hey. I am from germany. I only wanted to say, that the scores of "The daVinci Code" and "Illuminati" (Angels and Demons) are absolutely amazing. I just cannot stop hearing it. My favorite pieces are Dies Mercurii i Martius, Chevaliers de Sangreal and The God Particle are the best.
So....that was it =)

Seldom does a piece of music grab me as much as "Chevaliers de Sangreal" has! My god, it just stopped me in my tracks when I overheard a few bars from the movie a family member was watching. What can one say when the majesty and awe are so entirely breath-taking and make the tears come from so deep a place you just want to inhabit it or stay with it forever? What can you say? Thank you, Mr. Zimmer. Our ears were created to hear this magnificence, our hearts to tremble at it.

Chevaliers De Sangreal is a Divine piece of music - in every sense of the word. Whenever I listen to it (which is often), my heart bursts open and it brings tears to my eyes. Thank you Hans for giving us the beauty and majesty of Chevaliers De Sangreal. Love and blessings.

My favourites songs of this album are:
"Chevaliers of Sangreal" (in all my family we listen, we are like it this song, is one of the best pieces of Hans Zimmer for me) and "L'esprit des Gabriel" ( a mistery theme, I like it this song, is very mistery and detailed).

This is maybe Zimmer's best score, because there's no popular melodies and all demonstrate excellent techic of composing. Music is deep like some great classical masterpieces. Orchestration is also good, altough there is a lot of strings, which use to describe gothic atmosphere of movie.

This is a brilliant score! This is when I like Hans Zimmer the best. When his music is more symphonic in nature. This is up in ranks with The Thin Red Line and Pearl Harbor. And every time I listen to Chevaliers De Sangreal I get chills up my spine! This is a wonder listen!

Zimmer is one of the finest film composers alive, with a fantastic knowledge of music's importance in the film.

I do want to point out, however, that someone may want to double-check the title "Malleus Maleficarum." Neither 'maleficius' (as a noun) or 'maleficus' (as an adjective), whichever was used as a derivative, are 1st declension and therefore would not decline out with '-arum.'

I only point this out--and if my Latin is wrong, please correct me--not because I want to denounce Hans Zimmer and his work, but because I respect it and want the printing and such to be as correct as possible as a reflection of his precision.

Nick B reply Replies: 0 || 2008-04-04 00:00:00
To answer some questions, the text for 'Kyrie for the Madgalene' is from the Latin mass, though not exclusively from one part. It uses lines like
Kyrie Eleison
Christe Eleison
Requiem Aeternam etc.

Midis of a few of the pieces from the soundtrack can be found at:

I think the Da Vinci Code score is simply one of the best music compositions ever written and produced. I have a deep appreciation for music, and Mr. Zimmer, I am thrilled to have this opportunity to tell you that I think your work is nothing less than phenomenal. As a writer and editor, I confess to using many of your scores to motivate my work and the directions my stories take. If I were a film producer, you'd be scoring my film! Thank you for giving us some of the most compelling and enduring classical music of our time.

Hans Zimmer, your music is the best I've ever heard! Everytime I watch a movie with your music the sounds still rest for hours in my head!

I also think that Chevaliers de Sangreal is the best
soundtrack, but i ask me all the time where I knew it from! There must be another movie with similar or even the same track?!

Please, if anybody knows which movie also uses this soundtrack PLEASE let me know it!!

Maybe it was a part of Pirates of the Carribean but
I really dont know for sure!

Please help me, ##### write a new comment, everybody should know it!
I'm sorry for my bad english, but im from Germany!
