I've been to Dartmoor. It's absolutely wonderful.

This seems to be similar to Far and Away's first track, "County Galway, June 1892"

I think I shall abandon other forums to only come here now ! :drool:
I met John Williams in Barbican Center, London (UK) on June the 30th 1996. Terrific LSO concert.
I got my cover from Always signed by the god of music, who was very pleased by my choice. Posted Image

This just in: it seems that this tracklist was not yet finalized, and the European release will drop the Dartmoor track. This leaves us with only 0 tracks. What's more, the last track will be a reprise of the first!

Ars superior est vita hominum.

 

"We pop out and come into the world and music is there. We didn't invent it - it's all organised in the atmosphere by divinity or whatever. It's a miracle." - John Williams-

 

I think music is a stream of some kind. It could be blood. It could be water. It could be ether. Whatever it is it seems to be a living, organic force that’s in motion, that serves humanity and is part of humanity and part of what describes us as humans. We sing, play, dance, all the things that we do. And there is a vibrant and great literature we have been given. ... As musicians, we join the stream. We swim in the stream with all the other millions of music makers. It’s a life force, a strong one, surrounding us and we are part of it. -John Williams-

Hmmmm.

I wonder whether this is gonna be the main theme, or a prologue kind of thing, or what.

I've been to Dartmoor. It's absolutely wonderful.

This seems to be similar to Far and Away's first track, "County Galway, June 1892"


Or maybe "Sierra Leone, 1839"? :P

Has JW ever scored an auction before? Well, there was the Slave Auction in Amistad... and wasn't there also an auction scene in Far and Away?

Do you not know that JW and his music are a serious thing? VERY SERIOUS! And note the lack of smileys, hence this is a serious post. I am being very serious.

Something with slight suspence followed by a sense of triumph and relief, use of the main theme for the horse and the boy as they meet each other for the first time.

LOL - if anyone thinks the movie will end with the horse still alive then I don't know what to tell you.

Honestly, if you want to avoid spoilers about the movie I'd probably recommend staying out of this thread entirely.... every track title tells you a little more about the movie.

Listening to the CD before you see the movie while knowing the titles means you might know what's about to happen if you recognize the music starting to play.

I just wanted to be clear that the guy is only giving them to me one at a time, and I post here as soon as he does. This isn't the case where he's already sent me the whole list, and I'm only posting them here one at a time. I wouldn't do that.
