Omg, who is the music director for Teen Wolf?
Miserere Mei Deus topped of with a sample of Ave Maria at the end of tonight’s “Visionary” episode. Miserere is my favorite piece of choral music ever, and I haven’t heard it in TV/Movie since 1997’s Face/Off.
It’s based on Psalm 51. When translated from Latin, it means “Have mercy on me, O God, Cleanse me from my sins” which is so perfect for Derek’s lament while he hesitates to show Talia his new, blue-glowing eyes. It was perfect. I have never been so moved by the music on this show.
It’s crazy how much thought goes into aspects of this show, like song choices. Most people don’t, and will never know that the choral song in Latin, aside from being beautiful, is also meaningful to Derek’s character and most likely carefully selected for the story line.
When a show on MTV who is known for showcasing current, buzzworthy tracks also uses a song written in in the 1630’s for the Sistine Chapel, that’s pretty awesome.
Music director: I appreciate you.
