Mozart Requiem?   Monday, July 17, 2006 (8:21 a.m.) 

Did anyone notice that the slow chello theme for Jack Sparrow mirrrors the opening of Mozart's Requiem? Am I just imagining this, or do you think that Zimmerman's affinity for the Gregorian Chant requieum inspired him to insert a short homage to the opening of Mozart's rendering? I certainly heard the Gregorian requiem coming through at points in PotC 2.

In fact my un-film score and un-classical music listening sister noted the similarity to me when she saw Amadeus after watching over the first Pirates film again and again. There certainly is a similarity there, but wouldn't read too much into it, more of a rhythmic similarity that soon fades off.

I totally agree with you after listening to the opening. It's a very similiar beat as well. ad also during the Kraken when the strings come in :43
