Featuring the 91-piece Hollywood Studio Symphony, this is another great score by James Newton Howard, continuing his collaboration with director M. Night Shyamalan. There are two vastly different cues from the score in this sequence that fit so perfectly together. There is such simple and swelling emotion throughout, and it really works within each scene so perfectly. There is no question that James Newton Howard and Shyamalan's continued collaboration is certainly a special one.
