Duel Of The Fates

Duel of the Fates - Star Wars Episode I : The Phantom Menace (1999)

Composed by John Williams

The lyrics that the choir are singing are a medieval Welsh poem called “Cad Goddeu" or "Battle of the Trees.” What they’re saying in English translates to “Under the tongue root a fight most dread, and another raging, behind, in the head." Williams then decided to translate the words into different languages to hear which he liked best. He settled on Sanskrit. (x)
