    Supposedly the beginning of that track never features in the film. I won't argue with that, as I don't remember hearing it either. The final part of the track, beginning with Vader's theme, plays when Anakin uses the Force to close the doors on the separatists on Mustafar, and then we cut to Yoda and Obi-Wan killing clonetroopers as the force theme plays. The Emperor's theme right at the end underscores the change of scene to the Senate, I believe.
    Part of the track (a little bit before the final statement of the force theme) accompanies Mace Windu's screams after having his hand lopped off.

    The beginning of "Enter Lord Vader" sounds like Grievous's Theme. A lot of short cadences and fanfares were recorded for the Utapau lightsaber duel - this may be one of them.

    I'm thinking the cue at the begining of Enter Lord Vader might score the duel between Grievous and Shaak Ti.

    I know that "Anakin's Dream" wasn't the only time "Across the Stars" played. I think it also played during some of the ending scenes, or at least in some of the really sad scenes toward the end. When were these particular scenes? And was the song actually just part of some new song for this movie? If so, which one?

    "Across the Stars" features in:

    "The Reunion of Anakin and Padme" (unreleased)
    "Anakin's Dream"
    "Padme's Ruminations"
    "A Moody Trip" (last part of "Grievous Speaks to Lord Sidious)
    "Padme's Visit" (unreleased)

    I'm thinking the cue at the begining of Enter Lord Vader might score the duel between Grievous and Shaak Ti.

    When... WHEN would that possibly have happened?

    It was a deleted scene. Shaak Ti was a prisoner on a Separtist cruiser and he either has a duel with her or kills her without mercy. I think it was to be seen if the Fuel Tank scene was in the movie as well.

    There's a really powerful version of it towards the end of the film. I think it mixes with the Imperial March, too. Best use of Across the Stars in the entire series, but too short.

    At the part when Obi and Anakin are fighting across the pipes to the part when the lava in the background erupts behind the two.

    Which song in the soundtrack is that from? or is it unreleased?

    If you mean the varition on the BotH theme that plays after Duel of the Fates is over, it's called (or at least according to jwfan.com) "The Boys Continue" (probably a temp name, I'm sure any offical release would have a more Star Wars-y name).

    It's a shame that it wasn't on the OST, as on that we get three pretty similar arrangments of the BotH theme (Battle of the Heros, Anakin vs. Obi-Wan and End Credits), where as the arrangement in this track has it in the lower brass (if I remember correctly), and it would have been nice to hear that.

    Edit: Man, I need to learn how to spell. Urgh.

    I can't read through all these pages, I got through about the first ten though and no one touched it.

    Does anyone know why The Throne Room during the credits roll they butchered is so gosh darn slow? You could have fit that in much less time if you took the tempo up a little more. I bet they could have kept it in if they had fit it in 10 minutes instead of the 13 or 14 the orginal was. (dispite what some say about it not fitting, it would have been a neat)

    On top of that, the trumpets sound very distant in the Anakin vs. Obi-Wan cue. The concert version sounds a lot brighter.

    All in all though, I thought it was very well done. I expected some more themes from the original to be used, but I'm sure glad it wasn't all Imperial March blaring. Some of those cues, like the Immobilation scene...just breath taking. Very good way for Williams and the LSO to wrap up the series. (I found it neat that some of the staff of the orchestra participated in all 6 films)

    I don't remember this. The cue "Padme's Visit" contains Across the Stars and the Imperial March, but both brief statements, and not at the same time.

    I somehow got the feeling they played it slower as if to say "Look, it is a new recording, we didn't track the one from 1977 in! Honest!"

    But Williams probaby had a better reason for it.

    It sounds even better slower, IMO.

    First of all I'd like to thank everybody in this thread for their help.

    Basically, for my University degree I had to do an analysis of a film score. Unfortunately I onlt had just over a week to write it by the time we had finished our practical work, and this was the morning of the opening RotS day!

    Consequently I analysed the score in the context of the film, and here is the link if anybody would like to read it?

    http://www.geocities.com/episode3score/revenge_of_the_sith.pdf

    Forgive me not knowing ALL of the tracked cues, or not recognising certain phrases from TPM etc, but it was a bit of a rush job.

    Also if anybody would like to point out any mistakes I have made; please do (just don't tell my lecturer!)

    I think this question has been answered elsewhere in this thread, but I have no idea where.

    Where in the film does "The Dark Side Beckons" play? I know someone said it was in RotS, I just don't remember where.

    I was wondering if anyone of you knows what piece of music plays during the arrival of "Darth Vader" on Mustafar? The moment he walks into the room and does the force thing to shut down the doors? Is it on the Cd? Thanks in advance.

    Ok. I'm replying to my own post. The scene I mentioned very much sounds like "Enter Lord Vader", track 11. Am I right? The title itself would be a dead give-away.

    Yes, it is "Enter Lord Vader." There are a few differences though: in the film, the first ten seconds of the track are not used, bass drums are overdubbed into the arrival at Mustafar scene, and a timpani roll precedes the statement of Vader's theme.

    You may be thinking of "The Clash of Lightsabers," the music from ESB when Vader Force tossed stuff at Luke, and breaking the window, causing him to get sucked out. If that be the case, it's featured quite prominently in the first half of "Anakin vs. Obi-Wan."

    Is it just me, or is the most beautiful piece of music in the entire film the small, loving statement of the Main Theme when Obi-Wan takes Luke to Tatooine?

    Obi-Wan, holding Luke, on Tatooine, with the Star Wars theme playing. It was just PERFECT. I had to go home and watch ANH right away, even though it was 3 in the morning at that point.
