Same here. The cue I want the most is ďWe Strike FirstĒ.@Edmund<br>I canít agree enough. These remakes suffer from the issue of being inferior to the original source material, mainly because they rely so heavily on copying the originals so heavily. Iím not necessarily against Disney updating their classics if they are willing to do new takes on the material. Take Jungle Book for example; they were able to do something fresh with the concept while keeping elements of the animated film. Even Maleficent, which Iím not crazy about, tried something new. <br><br>Another BIG issue Iíve noticed is the fact that they lean towards hiring actors who cannot sing, or at least cannot sing on the level required. Emma Watson, Will Smith, Chiwetel Ejiofor, etc.Best shot <br>It wasnt meant to be<br>Home invasion<br>Ahab waves (0:39-end)<br>Permission to come aboard?<br>Ask the sea<br>Ahab waves (0:00-0:38)<br>Saving pops<br>Swimming lessons<br>Kingdom of atlantis<br>Legend of atlan<br>Ring of fire<br>What does that even mean?<br>Ocean to ocean<br>Obligation<br>Dunes<br>Map in a bottle<br>Black manta<br>Mera montage<br>Between land and sea<br>Trench engaged<br>What could be greater than a king?<br>Suited and booted<br>He commands the sea<br>Reunited<br>Everything i need<br><br>"Arthur" and "Atlantean Soldiers" are probably suitesJust want shrike death cue!I feel as though Menken did a bit more to differentiate his 2017 Beauty and the Beast from the 1991 one. The major pieces like "Prologue" and "Transformation" were left relatively intact but otherwise the rewrite was a bit more substantial than what Zimmer and crew did here. Compare the final battle music from the original (which consists to a large degree of upbeat instrumental versions of "Be Our Guest") to the remake (which is largely serious, straightforward orchestral action music). I haven't heard his new Aladdin so I'm not sure what the old:new ratio was there.<br><br>I'm not necessarily complaining, this is basically what I expected the score would be from the moment it was announced. The problem lies deeper, with the entire premise of these pointless remakes that allow very little wiggle room for freshness or creativity. Of course, I have no doubt this movie will make north of a billion dollars and give the Disney execs further license to print money. Maybe by the time they've remade every single film in their vault enough time will have passed that they can just start from the beginning again and nobody need ever be subject to the indignity of an original story ever again.
It's a variation of the theme Anthem from the first Top Gun film by Harold Faltermeyer.whats the name of the song being played in this trailer?<br>is it available onlineThis is the perfect companion piece to the original. It is like the high level concert version that Zimmer never did with the original Lion King.Is there any form of chronological order to the original with the deluxe tracks?Looks like your wish was granted ;)<br>
It's out for me and "Ask The Sea" is exactly the cue I wanted :D It's so good! I actually tweeted at him asking if he'd consider including it in the release - he didn't react to my tweet then and now I wonder if he read it or he planned to include it all along. <br><br>I've only seen the movie once and I haven't listened to the score much so I need to revisit it soon.Thanks, that's great!!<br><br>Hooe those sessions will be here soon. Still a lot of music music. Would have liked it better if those remixes, were actually score tracksMera Montage is the big rock vocal cue used during the Sicily Battle & the Wine scene.<br><br>Home Invasion the opening soldiers barging in to capture Atlanna, as well as a part of the Black Manta / Orm negotiation scene.<br><br>Saving Pops is... the saving pops scene...<br><br>Ahab Wave is the tsunami scene + and when Aquaman arrives to the sub to fight Manta's gang.<br><br>Ask the Sea is when Aquaman refuses to help Manta's dad.<br><br>Olbigation is the soft piece in the plane when Aquaman & Mera talk.<br><br>Dunes is the comedic Dunes slide scene...I just want the Sicily Battle music!Having seen it I can say visually it is incredible, definitely a work of art on that level. What sets it back (for me personally) is the lack of a strong emotional core. The choice to make the animals realistic looks great, but doesnít have the same range that the hand drawn version had in terms of giving the animals the facial characteristics like the original. Soulless might be kind of harsh, but I didnít feel anything throughout. Also doing a shot-for-shot remake probably wasnít the best approach. <br><br>Musically though; this definitely was a great reminder as to why the original score is still a classic. Like everyone has said, itís a perfect companion piece that actually fixes some minor flaws and fleshes out some ideas much better. Some important cues missing though.
ďAsk The SeaĒ <br>Oh please be the cue I want...Deluxe edition releases tomorrow<br>http :// filmmusicreporter .com /2019/07/18/aquaman-deluxe-edition-soundtrack-to-be-released /Didn't Menken do much the same with Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast? I think the only ones who have been the most original with the scores to these remakes have been Danny Elfman and John Debney.<br><br>My personal view is this serves as a great compliment to the 1994 soundtrack, not an outright replacement. If you combined the two you'd get quite the meaty soundtrack.<br><br>As for the film itself, I highly doubt it will be as 'great' as the original, but that's not to say that it deserves the slating critics have given it either. I personally can't say - I haven't seen it yet.Recently in China, a movie was released called Looking Up, and the soundtrack was released with Steffen Thum's score and main theme/additional music by Lorne Balfe.I have to agree. It's a stellar score and I love it, but it was written 25 years ago, nevertheless.<br>Still, credit where credit's due, as you mentioned, the new 'Stampede' is a beast of a track, really added to the original, as well as the 'Battle' cue, awesome stuff for sure. <br>Haven't seen the movie yet, but I really hope it measures up, at least in the same way the score does.

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.

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).

V.Gecin reply Replies: 0 || 2008-07-24 00:00:00
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!
