Is this based off a classical piece?
« on: December 24, 2015, 04:34:07 AM »

Movie -- Sum of All Fears
Piece -- The Mission


I was busy, but I thought I heard this melody in a classical station today.  Male vocalist though.  I wondered about it.  And it's a movie composer.  They might borrow and adapt.  Take the original source material that has this melody, write a pop song, add around it for the movie....

Is there an original source for this?  Maybe an opera?

I was looking at this, but it's not...
Romance: Io la vidi e al suo sorriso
 from opera "Don Carlo"
 Composed by Giuseppe Verdi

I know that Neussun Dorme  or however you spell it is what he is listening to at the end of the movie when they all get murdered.  I always found it kind of odd how the bad guys in Jack Ryan movies all seem to like Italian opera.  Guess it makes them look smarter...or more cultured.

I am listening and it does not sound familiar to me. :)

Sets up the montage sequence.  Haha.

I found a line somewhere about "The Mission" being Goldsmith and the other guy, but I still don't trust that.
