[Song Discussion] Climbing the Down
« on: November 07, 2015, 07:33:54 AM »
(Originally written by Hawkbit)

This piece contains the most impressive build right up to the recognizable lines from Dandelion, “Come and look! You can see the whole world!” Morley uses the entire orchestra to navigate the climbing of Watership Down, and looking out at the view from the hills into the countryside below. This piece is extended in the film, and this particular cut of the music is used at the end of the film when Hazel dies.


Kneel down before the greatness of Darkling's dark ... ... ... Darkness!!!

The build up of this works so well; you really get a sense of excitement at their final push to reach their new home, and of course getting there. This is one of my favourite pieces on the soundtrack.
Here lies a signature that has little point.
