The Horns of Hell

I have completed the first draft of Jerry Goldsmith Scores the Middle Ages, but it still needs some work. I am going to be fiddling with it tonight, as I would like to have the disc completed by the weekend. I don't think that will be much of a problem, as the structure of the disc is sound, just some minor specifics with Lionheart (those "minor" issues can sometimes take forever to solve, though).

One of the things I did was graft "Honey" onto the end of "The Horns of Hell" from The 13th Warrior (a combination I hit on by accident, but it works beautifully in context). Usually when I combine two tracks, I come up with a new title for the whole to avoid making the resulting track title too unweildy, but in this case I just made it into a compound track title, "The Horns of Hell · Honey." I don't think that this is too long, and to be frank, track titles don't get any better than "The Horns of Hell" do they?
