"Your Father Would Be Proud" from Rogue One // Composed by Michael Giacchino (@m_giacchino) ~ It's been awhile since I've shared anything from "Rogue One" :) I've posted "Your Father Would Be Proud" before, but I wanted to come back to it because the reality is, we continue to learn! My interpretation and understanding of this piece has changed, and I want to share my feelings on it (oh, and there's the small matter of that I'm on a bit of a "Dies Irae" kick at the moment 😉)! I believe it's safe to say that "Your Father Would Be Proud" is one of the most tragically powerful pieces in the entire SW saga. There is one element I really want to focus on though: "Dies Irae". For those of you who don't know, "Dies Irae" is a Gregorian chant describing the Last Judgement, trumpet summoning souls before the throne of God, where the saved will be delivered and the unsaved cast into eternal flames. Interestingly though, the main Rogue One/Jyn Erso theme is heavily influenced by "Dies Irae" opening with essentially a direct statement of it. So essentially, this idea of the Day of Judgement is ALL OVER "Rogue One"! In this excerpt of "Your Father Would Be Proud", we open with a couple partial statements of it, though we then crescendo into the the Rogue One/Jyn Erso theme, and therefore "Dies Irae", at the height of the piece. "Dies Irae" carries the message of impending doom, which in the case of "Rogue One" makes perfect sense, though in the context of when it's used, we typically can also see the concept of "choice" and the consequences of such, with that "Light and Dark", "Good and Evil", "Heaven and Hell" motif in play. Before I go further, I feel like I need to contextualize a little of what I'm saying. "Dies Irae" shows up lots in Star Wars, but there are three big times in particular that I think will prove my point. The first of which is in "A New Hope" as Luke stands before the burning homestead as he makes the decision to go with Obi-Wan and learn the ways of
