I disagree that track 11 is too 'triumphant' for the dark theme of slavery here. The music plays as the English ship destroys the slave fortress at Lomboko. For those of us who know the ultimate future of the slave trade we see it as a defiant first step to destroying slavery. The music at this point isnt about Cinque and the other Amistad slaves winning thier case, its about the overall theme of deciding to fight aginst evil.
