Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) 'Wanderer's Nightsong'

Composed by John Ottman

Arr. and Orch. by Lior Rosner


John Ottman's musical score for Bryan Singer's 2008 film Valkyrie contains a requiem-like piece for soprano and chorus in the exit music with Ein gleiches as lyrics.
In the film's context, the poem serves as a lament on the miscarried assassination on Adolf Hitler on July 20th, 1944, mourns the proximate death of most of the assassins,
and with the last two lines forecasts the demise of those whom they failed to kill.
