What music of Popol Vuh is actually used for this film?

Information below is based on the findings by David Goodine (Toronto). With many thanks!

The time listed in brackets are when the pieces appear in the film.

In order of appearance:

1. 'Wehe Khorazin' (excerpt)

Near the start of the film. From 'Sei still, wise ICH bin'.

2. 'Als lebten die Engel auf Erden' (0:12:30)

From 'Sei still, wisse ICH bin'.

3. 'Engel der Luft' (0:16:00)

From 'Die Nacht der Seele-Tantric Songs'

4. 'Engel auf Erden' (reprise) (0:40:30)

5. 'Engel auf Erden' (reprise) (0:43:30)

6. ‘Lass los’ (1:36:00)

Brief excerpt from the second half of the piece. From 'Sei still, wise ICH bin'. As well, in the trailer contained in the DVD of this movie, a longer excerpt from 'Lass los' is used.

7. 'Im Reich des Schatten' (1:57:00)

From 'Die Nacht der Seele'. On this track, Herzog slowed down the speed down, which gives it an eerie quality in the film.

8. 'Wehe Khorazin' (excerpt) (1:59:30)

9. 'Garten der Gemeinschaft' (2:06:30)

From 'Sei still, wisse ICH bin’

10. 'Garten der Gemeinschaft' (reprise) (2:13:30)

11. 'Wehe Khorazin' (reprise) (2:25:30)

Once again, Herzog slowed the speed down for this piece to give it a strange effect.
