I, too, am ignorant of "the Planets," which is obviously toooo bad. I love the whole "last suite" in the Gladiator score. I was relieved to know that "We are Free" means nothing...except it smacks of Hebrew, Latin, and Spanish all rolled into one. Which brings me to my question: what are the lyrics for the said "planets" section? It is definitely classical. It even reminds me of Mozart's Requiem which is also fantastic. Anyway, any incite for the uninformed...but learning, would be very much appreciated!
