So I ended up cramming to get this final selection in some sort of shape for the recital. I know it was just played in the previous recital, but I was out of options.

I truly love this piece and hope to someday be able tackle the full, unadulterated, score. </td></tr></tbody></table>

Normally I work a lot on putting in a lot of chord substitutions but this one doesn't really need it, just a few subs. If you want to hear a really incredible solo piano version of this check out 7notemode on YouTube. Now that I know the song I think I might try to delve into 7notemode's tutorial on this song. </td></tr></tbody></table>

I have no sheet music for it so the way I play it has changed a lot, but I think this recording is pretty close to James Horner's original performance since I listened over and over to the real thing before recording this.

Also I HATE the Celine Dion version of this! Yuck! </td></tr></tbody></table>
