• In Response to: CheValiers de Sangreal - The Best (DanTo)

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.
