    My favourite is the revised version from a year after the film. It's such a shame they didn't record this for the third Spielberg/Williams CD, a totally bizarre and thoughtless omission (along with A.I.).

    alternate, because that's what you hear over the end credits.

    I probably have a slight preference for the original. My edit starts with the original as a prologue and ends with the alternate rounding out the end credits. I find this sequencing to be very satisfying. I like the alternate a lot but the original does feel slightly more like an organic part of the whole.

    Of the two, I prefer the original.  It's true that the alternate opening is more "badass, wilder more aggressive," but it's almost too much, too soon.  I like the way the first version is a slow build from beginning to end.

    Plagiarism is a bit harsh, and also unfitting a term. He used the same idea twice. So? He came up with it. He can use it as often as he likes, if he sees fit to do so!

    Few people know this, but that's actually the concert piece of No Ticket. 
     

     
    "Dobby's Theme" is seriously one of the most cheerful, charming, and feel-good pieces written by Williams. Invariably makes me smile. Too bad it was underused in the movie. 
     
    Yes. Indeed. 
     
    And if that had been included in the poll, you'd have voted for that?!

    I love all three in their own unique way and it came down to a difficult choice between Fawkes and the Chamber. The pure magic of Fawkes' theme is why I chose that arrangement for this poll, however the grandeur of the Chamber piece builds and builds and it has that amazing bridge section that always gets me PUMPED! I like the the progression of Dobby's theme as it seesaws back and forth in a whimsical way.

    I love all 3. My preferred listening order is Dobby-Chamber-Fawkes. Chamber gets the top mark though.

    Fawkes is a great theme, and the concert arrangement is fine, nothing wrong with it, but I like the way the theme is integrated into film cues more than this particular arrangement, which gets a bit more flighty then the film ever called for.  That's interesting, but not my cup of tea necessarily.

    Dobby The House Elf is a perfectly fine theme for the character, and works well in the film, but the concert arrangement doesn't really take it in any new places or say much about the character that the film cues don't.
     
    The Chamber theme is wonderful, a great new addition to the series' bed of themes.  The way the theme is worked into various cues are among my absolute favorite parts of the score, and to this day I will never understand why JW didn't include those cues on the OST album.  The concert arrangement is also just aces.  Takes the small theme and explodes it into grandiose proportions in a really cool way.  I love it.

    Yes, it is one of the reasons why I'm not keeping the redundant old OST albums - the lack of space in my home.
     
    To keep all old releases I will need this space

    Well, for me, it's about the collector's value (plus a dose of nostalgia). If  you own the first edition of your favourite book (let's say Harry Potter or Lord of the Rings or whatever), would you throw it away because a newer version came out with better, more legible print, with a new introduction and afterword, new illustrations, updated cover art etc.? 
     
    Well, for me, that's a big no. The first edition will always hold a very special place in my heart. But that's just me. You're welcome to have your own take on things.

    I agree. I never get rid of original editions after getting extended ones - from sentiment, and sometimes because the original shorter program is still attractive to listen to. And let's not forget that in the 80s and 90s the discs were made of better quality materials than now, which may mean that the original releases will survive much longer than the extended ones.

    For me, the original is still unbeatable, but this one certainly comes very close. And yeah, you're right, I also love how the choir sounds very much like the trailer version of DT... More feminine and higher-pitched. Sounds more enchanting, somehow!
