Description
Description: McCloud theme develops, starting with a shift to minor when Nora talks about dying; the horn plays the theme and introduces some dissonance, which leads to an obsessive repetition of a circular pattern (involving three notes in ascending order and some chromatic circular patterns in the clarinet - sounds almost like a dream sequence or a flashback); Frank talks about her husband staying awake for three days back in the war, standing guard; the music speeds up and gets more intense; leads to a tense tremolo
On-screen: Nora and Frank talk about George
