THOUGHT IT WOULD BE GOOD TO HAVE HER OWN INDIVIDUAL VOICE AS

WELL. BUT IT'S STILL AN ARRANGEMENT,

AND THERE'S A CONNECTION TO WHAT OUR THEME IS.

IF YOU LISTENED CAREFULLY, YOU HEARD A PART OF THE SYMPHONY,

AND YOU'LL HEAR THE SAME PORTION, BUT IT'S THE

INTRODUCTIONS AND THE CONCLUSION OF THE BEAUTIFUL FOLK SONG,

SHENANDOAH. (MUSIC)
