Writing for ethnic chant.../The score's split personality...

Are there any interviews up about how Horner worked with Rahat in writing for this foreign and complicated type of chanting? I'm just curious.

I feel that there should have been a tad more coherency throughout the score--possibly an ethnic flute to connect the ethnic track with the love- and main themes? Even though it may have a slight case of dissociative disorder, in my mind Four Feathers overshadows many of Horner's past Epic scores, although not touching the holy Glory or hallowed Willow.

Great review, CC!
