Qui-Gon's Funeral

(1999)


from STAR WARS EPISODE I - THE PHANTOM MENACE


Music by John Williams

John Williams had the words "Death's long sweet sleep" loosely translated into Sanskrit just as he had done with lines from the poem Cad Goddeu for Duel of the Fates. He liked the quality of the vowels in Sanskrit.
