Music: Confrontation, by Christopher Franke
Album: The Celestine Prophecy, A Musical Voyage.
The musical selection is a piece that has always made me want to see it accompanied by video imagery, every time it has come up in my itunes playlist.
In case anyone asks, the relatively long scene later in the video with Orlando Bloom hitting the kid is a very meaningful scene in Kingdom of Heaven. He decides to knight all of the able-bodied men in the city, in preparation to fight a hopeless battle. The slap is the "colée" (or buffet), which was historically done before it evolved into the more familiar tapping of the shoulders with a sword blade. This is the moment that the kid, and all of the other men have become knights. The old man asks if he really believes that making them knights will make them fight better. He simply responds, "yes."
Thanks for watching, and enjoy!
Cantate Domino canticum novum: quia mirabilia fecit.
Gloria Patri, et Filio: et Spiritui sancto.
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc, et semper: et in saecula saeculorum, Amen.
Translation (via google):
Sing to the Lord a new canticle: because He hath done wonderful.
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end, Amen.
