Hello everyone! After watching the film I noticed that about half of music that used in film disappeared at sessions or has different arrangement. Why it's not released? What's the reason for this?As always with unused pieces of music. There are always be more interesting. Like with Dark Phoenix.I think what Lorne wrote for the last 30 min of the movie is way better than what ended in the movie... Lorne tried to elevate what was going on on screen, but it was probably too "bold" for the taste of production... They wanted to keep as "kow key" as possible but to me it made the ending of the film fall super flat...
<br>
<br>In the end there isn't that much Lorne in the film (most of the "Moon" reel is Lorne though, that big 4 notes motif appearing during the moon landing and then takeoff). Ironically most of the droning you're all complaining about is not that much Lorne... lol
<br>
<br>I really hope Lorne will put out as much music as possible, even all the unused parts, which are the more interesting ones !Taking in the movie now after having seen it. The cinematography is brilliant, and there are some interesting concepts that really will have you thinking long after walking out of the theater. Still, I couldnít help but feel like the film dragged throughout. Coupled with the voiceover the movie has a very ĎTerence Malick-yí, ďThin Red LineĒ feel throughout.<br><br>Iím definitely not familiar with Max Richter so I canít comment on what he might have written, but Balfeís broad-chord style is pretty recognizable throughout. There are also some interesting electronic pieces used throughout, possibly might be Balfe but hard to say as of now. The rest of the music is pretty contemplative, ranging from slow/emotional string pieces to more ambient droning.Well, I heard only Balfe's "Prayer" and Richter's "To the stars"... All I can say is we need to wait for the full release, hear both composers and only then talk about who better coped with this. (and watch the movie of course)<br>I don't think Balfe is a bad composer. He does pretty good as an additional composer but not as a leading (mostly). The only soundtrack that I consider the best to date in his solo career is "M:I-Fallout" and "Assassin's Creed III". (imo)<br>Who knows what will be this time. But for now I like Richter's track more.
I'm just waiting for Gemini Man, that (i hope) would be funI love that cue.So I created a page for it, move away from Ghost In The Shell !! :PI wonder if this track is the one causing consternation: Nils Frahm: 'Says' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dIwwjy4slI8<br><br>It sounds a bit like what Richter and Balfe could produce, but it is much more artistic than Balfe and much more synth-based than Richter. Frahm is credited for additional music.Not writing negative comments about Balfe for the purpose of writing negative comments - ie. trolling - but for the fact that Balfe does not seem to take film composition seriously. Goldsmith had a similar pace in the 1990s that equates to contemporary Balfe, but he managed to produce fantastic scores like Air Force One in a few weeks (yes, with some help from McNeeely). Balfe simply does not seem to have those skills so he resorts to cliches and drony nonsense. I await to be proven wrong. That Balfe track is not half-bad so I do maintain a general sense of expectation for this.
Not any more lame than the Balfe cueLorne says it will be released and insists itís not a GITS situation.That's been standard in certain cases, though considerably less nowadays with how complicated these situations have become.<br><br>Having heard both tracks posted, both give me little on their own. I'm sure they work better in the context of the film, and we might see better tracks unveiled eventually.He deserve better.Hans and Lorne like twins. Lorne has a very good personality. I still don't understand why some people are still writing bad comments to Lorne?Probably... lol
So is this how itís gonna be? Official release for Richter and leaks by Balfe :(Lorne posted a track from Ad Astra on his YouTube channelThank you. And i suppose "Need You Busting My Balls - End Credits" title would correspond to ASCAP "Need You Busting My Balls" + "RUSH END CREDITS", while "Just Married" to "RUSH MAIN ON END"?Thatís literally the best part of the score though. But itís typical Richter (Miss Sloane, Black Mirror: Nosedive).Hunt Drunken Weirdness is barely a cue actually, it's just a patch up of sound designs by Mel...<br><br>Italian Party is a name I made up for a cue that's not used in the movie ! :)

The Soundtrack is fantastic

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

Tonya reply Replies: 0 || 2009-07-16 00:00:00
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.

Klaas reply Replies: 0 || 2009-06-01 00:00:00
That information is above.

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.

Chevaliers of Sangreal moves me everytime I hear it.

Mario Soundtrack reply Replies: 0 || 2008-11-12 00:00:00
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.

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!
Sincerely
