CheValiers de Sangreal - The Best   Friday, May 26, 2006 (8:05 a.m.) 

I have to say that CheValiers de Sangreal (Track 13) is definitely the stand-out piece of this soundtrack, and I may even go as far as to say it is one of the finest cues of Han's career.

I feel that some of this score is rather 'forgettable' and perhaps a little uneventful. I was playing it last night while working, and after the first two tracks, I wasn't really paying attention. But when Track 13 began, I literally stopped what I was doing and just sat mesmorized and moved. That one track captures so much history, so much emotion, so much power and integrity.

Hans, another fine job.

It probably is the standout track as it somewhat different from the other tracks AND it features during the revelation/finale of the film which it did seem to suit.
I do like it yet it seems to be missing a little something somehow. I'm not totally convinced the mixing is quite right (or at least my definition or expectation of "quite right" ) . The cymbal crash (as Langdon drops to his knees in the film ) feels rather unclear when usually it pierces the other sounds around it. Also the choir seems to be rather undermixed . It perhaps should have had the mix of "Resurrection" from "Passion of the Christ" - that choir really does blow your head off!!
Still - a decent track and some other nice segments on the album.

I agree that this is one of Zimmer's best tracks. It is so insightful and it fills one with hope. As it played on the screen when the location of Mary Magdalene is revealed, I nearly cried of joy. It is such a powerful track; I was touched and moved when I heard it.
I listen to it while studying, driving, or whenever I'm at home relaxing.

NEARLY CRY???? Oh I did both times I saw the movie....now that I have the CD, it reminds me and I cry again. It makes you wish it WAS so.

• Now Playing: chevaliers de sangreal  

i have to say this is the top....i as many, cried at the end, when mary is revealed. it may be true, who knows. that is for the creative mind to think about..i thought the end of "v for vendetta" was powerful, but this is tremendous, with hanks talking in the background of the music. his voice fit perfectly during the final scenes..hans is like no other....ms

If "It makes you wish it WAS so"..may I suggest you watch the documentary called "The Lost Tomb of Jesus"? In all sincerity, don`t let those who feel as Opus Dei..hide the truth.

Re: CheValiers de Sangreal - The Best   Saturday, June 3, 2006 (9:51 p.m.) 

I believe that "Chevaliers de Sangreal" is by far the best piece of music that I have heard in many years. In the beginning of the piece, I have the image of Mary Magdalene quickly leaving Jerusalem, afraid and fearful of her life. She dies an ignominious death somewhere in southern France, but there are people there to protect her, and her daughter Sarah. They love her with all of their heart, turly wanting her to take her rightful place in the world.

The Chevaliers de Sangreal preserve and protect her blood line throughout history, feeling that this is a holy task. Even so, the soul of Mary Magadalene cries out from the grave in firm conviction of who she was, and who she is, proclaiming her divinity. Then the music cresendos, leaving the listener with the feeling that the proclamation is there, but not complete. The music fades, as if to say that Sophie must freely make up her mind what to do.

I understand why one would feel a sense of being incomplete when hearing this piece, but I feel that this is exactly what Hans Zimmer wanted to so. The story is not yet over, and more chapters have yet to be written, but that is for the royal blood to do.

My congratulations to Hans Zimmer in creating truly an outstanding work of art. If there a regret, it is that I want to hear more of the "Chevaliers de Sangreal", but then again, it is in its incompleteness that makes it great.
