Monty Python music movie notes:
Opening credits have epic atonal timpani music until record drop/slow down. Then strings until another sacking. Then Mexican music just before the opening scene.
Opening section – Found sounds in the coconuts
The knight theme plays the first time while Sir Arthur is confronted by the peasants and is basically used as music to play between scenes as well as ...view middle of the document...
The holy grail gets a high vocal chord. Scary music approaching the castle. Peaceful harp and vocal music inside the castle. Romantic music pays behind the scenes. More siren like music in the background of the bathing chambers.
King Arthur – low mystical music with the mystic. Scary dissonant music in the forest. Electronic. KNIGHTS WHO SAY NI!!
The Tale of Sir Lancelot – more mocking musical with the singing son, constantly interrupting. Court musicians play for the wedding – source music. Rolling Timpani to represent Lancelot running
Killer bunny rabbit! Chanting accompanies the holy hand grenade
Short organ piece along with intermission
