There are some tunes, to the music we sing today, for which the origin is not known, yet we know it is centuries old. One such tune is called Palestrina, aka, St. Denio, which is the tune to the “Immortal, Invisible” hymn. This will be the score of the movie. Thousands of angels will be playing this, as a brass orchestra, while God is speaking from the cyclone.

It is interesting to think that a melody could have been passed down through the ages, since they transcend culture, language and time. What if there is a tune that we have mis-attributed to a composer, when they did not actually write it themselves, but rather learned it when travelling to another land, for example. There is no telling if we today are singing to a tune written by God Himself.
