Silvestri is too good to rip themes from other compositors

I agree, the track sounded ALMOST loke the grail theme, but here Alan did a more personal score, touching the end of the family's curse...William's Grail theme is more grandiose, echoing a forgotten but noble past...

as for Alan ripping LOTR; BLAHHH i said to that; Alan Silvestri (along with John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith) were legends LOOng before Howard Shore became one (ya, i NEVER heard of Shore up until LOTR)...so to say Silvestri rip Shore's work is like what the Cardinal says to Van Helsing in the confessional box; "Don'y BLASPHEME"!!!!
