Wasn't expecting any of that so I'm not disappointed :D <br><br>So apparently this is out as well as The Golden Circle.. listening now. Can’t believe I missed this.And that's why it bugs me so much lol. They're literally the biggest studio out there, so it would've been nice to see them go to the max with this release. Especially since it's one of their most popular IPs if not their most popular IP.BLU-RAY SPECIAL FEATURES:<br>Deleted Scenes:<br>Edwards Air Force Base<br>Charles Returns Home<br>Mission Prep<br>Beast MIA<br>Charles Says Goodbye<br>Rise of the Phoenix: The Making of Dark Phoenix (5-Part Documentary)<br>Scene Breakdown: The 5th Avenue Sequence88<br>How to Fly Your Jet to Space with Beast<br>Audio Commentary by Simon Kinberg and Hutch Parker<br>*Commentary available on Blu-ray, iTunes Extras and Movies Anywhere only<br>-----<br>no Hans (making of) and no isolated score :/ damn...Hey, this is Disney we're talking about. Never expect this sort of thing for that. The ONLY film from them that immediately springs to mind that got that the first time round was Frozen.
I feel like this is simultaneously the most enjoyable and least interesting Zimmer score of the last several years. It's nice to listen to, but it's basically the 1994 score rerecorded and tweaked in just a few places. Those tweaks do produce some highlights especially in the stampede and final battle sequences, but it's hard to think of this as a major effort, really. Yeah, it's good, but we've known that The Lion King is good for 25 years.I seriously don't understand why they didn't do two separate releases like most musicals do (La La Land comes to mind - perfect release). <br><br>A soundtrack album and a score album. No missing tracks, no fuss. And optional 2-CD set containing both.<br><br>Instead, they went with a soundtrack album with some of the score and another song album for whatever reason that is lol.The second half of the new "Elephant Graveyard" is basically note for note "I Was Just Trying to Be Brave" from the 1994 version as well, just with a few changes in orchestrationThis is only HGW's score, a good chunk of it was rejected.Wonder if it will take 20 years for an official complete score XD Not to mention any unofficial leaks (it took a long time to even get that for the original film). TBH, I'd prefer a proper release of any score any day of the week.<br><br>To answer the question above me: Mostly it's new material using the same themes from 1994, though if my interpretation the OST is correct, the hyenas and Timon and Pumbaa get new themes. The only true 'copies' of music from 1994 are Circle of Life and Remember, but even then, they are at least partially-new recordings.
Do we know who wrote what?Is it all material from 1994 or is it new 2019 score?I confirm I'm back from it, there's quite a bit of unreleased score.Well, now we have somebody who's seen it (and yes, it's out in some countries today), we know for certain.<br><br>I wouldn't expect anything official any time soon unless Zimmer wants to release a second CD.I absolutely love Kai’s theme in this score, there are so many cool variations that weren’t on the initial album. Hans and Co. really stepped up their game here. I don’t feel the temp as heavily here as KFP2 (which is still an amazing sequel score).
Saw the film today, there is a LOT of music missing.As stupid as this film is, you can tell Tom probably had fun working on it. The music is so over the top, it just goes nuts all the way through.This is one of those scores that I have really warmed up to since it’s release. The emotional stuff for Alita works really well in context and her “Hero Theme” gets some great development (the way it culminates in “Epilogue” is incredible). Also really love the “Motorball” stuff. <br><br>After seeing the film I think the only substantial music not on the album is “Motorball Plan” and “Alita’s Revenge Pt. 1”. The end credits piece I’m guessing is edited from the Full Motorball Suite.Hybrid, did Lorne actually do a lot of writing on this one or is he just being credited for the theme?We've had this argument before, almost any score can fit in a film. But what separates the mediocre composers from the best is the ability to make great music that works on its own, outside of the film. <br><br>Hans has had a lot of work lately that hasn't been doing that, and it's the reason people want him to work with orchestra again and produce is 2000s, late 90s type of style. Because those scores, for whatever problems they had, they felt distinct, memorable (for the most part), and easily could have been enjoyed away from the film.<br><br>Good scores have themes and ideas that both enhance the film, and enhance the listener's experience. Music like Dunkirk, Inferno, or Widows just feel like shallow and empty committee scores that the studio/directors didn't want too much thought put into. "Ah just write one main theme, and fill in the rest with electronics, Hans, it'll be fine!"

The Soundtrack is fantastic

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).

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.

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!
