31 July 2020 - Natalie Imbruglia & Scala - The Hanging Tree

This song originally appeared in the 2014 movie The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 - and it is a huge shift in tone for the movie, if you've seen it.  It's a song that starts quietly and builds to a bombastic war chant.  

In this version, Natalie Imbruglia starts acapella, and then is joined by Belgian  women's choir Scala, followed by full orchestra.  It's a very powerful version of the song.  In this performance, they even captured the movie's feeling.
