What about the music during the Union attack??   Friday, January 9, 2004 (12:19 p.m.) 

For those of you who have seen the movie and contrary to the opinion of much of the other music used during this movie, the music during the initial Union attack on St. Petersburg at the beginning of the movie is stunning and powerful. It is emotional choir writing culminating with orchestral backgroud. Any idea if this music has been released anywhere? It was certainly the highlight of the score in my opinion, but lo and behold it appears to have not been released on the album! Phooey.........

It certainly *does* appear on the album; it's "Idumea," as done by the Sacred Harp Singers at Liberty Church. It certainly *is* stunning [full disclusure; I'm a Sacred Harp singer myself, know many of the singers, and have sung at that church], and the album actually helps one appreciate it the more--because you can hear the words!

Um, St. Petersburg is in Russia. I'm pretty sure that the Union army didn't launch an assault there although it really would have caught the Confederates off guard if they had. Petersburg is what they attacked for ten months. And you are right, this is the best piece of music in the film.
