With the notable exception of FANTASIA, my favorite Disney film is “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”. Its mature subject matter, celebration of outcasts and deeply spiritual overtones, its message is that with which I most closely identify.
However, there’s something about its incredibly moving soundtrack that has been bugging me for over 20 years…
The first 30-seconds of the album excludes the growing crescendo of bells heard over the film’s opening credits.
Created during a fit of divine inspiration here is the “corrected” version of the film’s powerful opening song.
