If for some strange reason, you've missed Korngold's work in KING'S ROW, this is the last scene, and while it is a spoiler, truth is, I find the story so well told that it really doesn't diminish it's power to see it. Korngold's music is perfect in this setting, like his ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD, five years earlier.


Korngold adds the last stanza of _Invictus_ sung in his theme. It is an emotional high point punctuation.




For those whom may not know the poem quoted, here is the poem Parris recites in part:

h4. _Invictus_

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.


In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed.


Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.


It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll.

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

Singable Translation:


Oh my beloved father,

I love him, I love him!

I?ll go to Porta Rossa,

To buy our wedding ring.


Oh yes, I really love him.

And if you still say no,

I?ll go to Ponte Vecchio,

And throw myself below.


My love for which I suffer,

At last, I want to die.

Father I pray, I pray.

Father I pray, I pray.
