Will return many times in season two, as in episode 10 when Nadine comes out of her coma, and in FWWM, when Laura and Bobby bug out in the woods after shooting the Deer Meadow cop. Track 12 of Season Two soundtrack.
Used often with James and Evelyn as well.
Guy Quenneville wrote:-- Audrey's Prayer: This track, thus named on the Season Two soundtrack, and later turned into Questions in a World of Blue for FWWM, is really the musical backbone of season two, as it came to represent so many different things over time, and underwent so many variations. It makes its premiere in this episode in a subdued version playing under Major Briggs' description of his vision to Bobby in the Double R, and later as Harriet recites her poem during the family dinner with the Palmers. Over time, it will be played during: Audrey's prayer to Cooper at the end of Episode 8; Donna's discovery of Madeline's death in Episode 16; Leland's wake in Episode 17; Audrey's goodbye to Cooper in Episode 17; Briggs' return in Episode 19; and frequently played in later episodes of season two to represent Cooper's budding love for Annie, and in this fashion it is probably best known as its slower, jazzy variation from Episode 27, called Annie and Coope and rreleased on DL.com in March.
Certainly one of the most beautiful themes featured in the show. The "Original Version" (the one released on the soundtrack) is used quite often, its tempo varying a hair here and there. Its first appearance (in the Major & Bobby scene), is slowed down the most. The "Alternate Version" (not yet released) is only heard in episode 17 when Audrey says goodbye to Cooper, and in Leland's wake scene (where its mixed with other elements). Of course, as mentioned, there's the much different version heard during Annie & Cooper's dance (which is also heard briefly, first, in episode 22 when James confronts Evelyn).
Guy Quenneville wrote:-- Harold's Theme/The Living Novel: Donna offers to read her life story to Harold if he agrees to read from Laura's diary. Released on the Season Two soundtrack, but the CD omits the dark, more ominous extensions of the theme, as in Episode 12, when Harold's agoraphobia takes hold and the climax of the same episode, when Donna and Maddy's treachery prompts him to scar himself with a garden tool.
I'm hoping we get a longer version than the released version. There certainly seems to be more heard in the series. There's also the very lovely "Alternate Version" (still unreleased) heard only once when Josie tells Truman about her past.
