    Update:
    Message from the store:
    "It is uncut, the film here is in the public domain and I paid a fortune to find a copy. It is from a tv showing from 30 years ago I believe and is uncut, or a directors cut as it is longer than the running time on imdb."

    I'm stuck with this melody in my head for a couple of days now. Unfortunately I saw it didn't have any narrative role in the film:

    Reposting from Twitter a little analysis I cooked up of this extraordinary piece of music:
     

     
    "Rise of Skywalker" concert arrangement based on two distinct but emotionally simpatico themes, a hymn (A) that's stated in full in the first minute (first woodwind choir, then strings), and a more lyrical, striving melody (B) that is stated over the next minute in strings and horns. The middle the piece is essentially a development section that sequences and composes out the B theme. Midway through, it becomes based on the music from the aftermath of the final battle in the movie.There's a big arrival back on the A-theme at 2:50, now much more fully orchestrated (in the film there's also chorus). This has some developmental qualities too (internal modulation to Db maj before returning to Bb), but overall serves a climactic & recapitulatory formal function. There are a few cadential delaying tactics before the very end, including a great brass chorale that evokes the conclusion of Rey's Theme nicely and a little rebel-fanfare-esque chromatic planing. The final bars make a brief, transformed statement of the B theme. 

    The unusual structure of this piece -- bithematic ternary with some light rotational and developing-variational features -- is characteristic of I guess you could call "late" period Williams SW concert arrangements. "Rebellion is Reborn" and "Galaxy's Edge" work similarly. Watching the way his approach concert arrangements have evolved over time is fascinating. The developmental, dare I say sonata-principle-esque, impulse seems to be getting stronger and stronger the older Williams gets. 

    In terms of melody & harmony, there's a nice mix of old and new here too. The A theme has a Lincoln-y quality, and the B-theme a War Horsey vibe (those tearjerking IV<=>iii progressions!), but I also get some ET, Amazing Stories, Midway, Spacecamp, even Close Encounters...I also hear Williams channeling Brahms quite strongly in the opening section, and echoes of Franck, Saint-Saens, and Prokofiev in the B-theme. As far as connections with Star Wars music, there seem to be some passing echoes of Rey (esp. her chimes), Rebel Fanfare, Jedi Steps, and March of the Resistance in there, plus Yoda/Young Anakin/Rose by dint of the lydian disposition of both A and B themes.

    Overall -- and my opinion will surely evolve over time -- I think it's an intensely beautiful, well-balanced, & sophisticated piece of music with a direct, heartfelt sentimentality that Williams does so well. Up there w/ Rey's theme as the best concert arr. of the ST.

    Someone mentioned before that the new theme, sounded like nothing before.
    Well, I played it on and on in my mind, and i think that its first phrase at least, is a clever mirror rearrangement of Luke's theme.
    here's what I'm talking about:
     
    New TROS theme:
    a) falling fifth
    b) rising three notes
    c) falling minor seventh
     
    Luke's theme
    a) rising fifth
    b) falling three notes
    c) rising minor seventh
     
    edit: forgot to mention that the 2 appearances in Rescue and Farewell, are in the same tonality too with Luke's theme.

    Sorry if this has been posted already -- I'm just catching up with the discussion of this score. Here's what I make of the 3.5 new leitmotifs I heard after a first viewing. I'll be updating my catalogue with additional discoveries of course, so this is a bit of a first draft...
     
    1) Anthem of Evil
     
    2) Kylo Ren/Knights of Ren new theme

     
    3a) Rise of Skywalker Opening Section (Hymn)

     
    3b) Rise of Skywalker Middle/Trio Section (Cantilena)

     
     
     
    Overall, I thought the score was at its highest quality when it was based on this new material and developments of themes from the PT. Honestly rather disappointed in the missed musical opportunities though, and the clumsy needle-drops of so much preexisting SW music.

    it's just that the Rise of skywalker track combines 2 themes.that's why i asked. The other theme is the trio theme.
    it plays with music but I'm not sure if it's anywhere. The sound FX were heavy.

    The Anthem of Evil theme appears 3 times on the FYC, so it's certainly in the film.

    Ok, just got back from the film..
    is it my imagination or there wasn't the speeder chase cue in the film?
    I thought I heard the motif though once, but that was it!!
    If that's the case, no wonder it was not in the FYC.
