And to me, especially after seeing the film, Track 6 is as good and important as the rest...though quite subdued in the film.
I'm definetly with you there about the main theme, I get chills of joy at the half way point, when the choir ends and the bass strings take over...it's a perfect theme that needs to be discovered by all!
