I don't want to seem stupid, but I've just listened to John Powell's score to 'X-Men: The Last Stand' and there's a really beautiful theme written for the Pheonix character that sounds amazing with the choral element behind it. And it got me thinking: this theme would have been perfect for The Da Vinci Code. Maybe not for a 'main theme' as such, but possible for the Merovingian bloodline or something. If anyone has the score to X3, the tracks that stand out to me are 'Dark Pheonix's Tragedy' and 'Pheonix Rises', and the presentation of this theme in those tracks would have suited DVC to a tee. Don't get me wrong, it was written for an X-Men film so it suits that film too. But I really wanted something more 'beautiful' for this film, and i think the Pheonix theme suits it.
