Use

In the soundtracks

Mark Mancina and Phil Collins composed the score of the 2003 film Brother Bear as well as its soundtrack and unofficial complete score. "Denahi Mourns" was written to represent the scene in which Denahi mourns the presumed death of his brother, Kenai, and resolves to hunt down and kill the bear that he believes is responsible.[1]

Parts of "Denahi Mourns" were used in the score "Awakes As a Bear", which was released as part of the film's soundtrack.[2][3]

In the film

Denahi resolves to hunt down the bear that he believes killed his brothers, during which "Denahi Mourns" is heard

"Denahi Mourns" is heard in Brother Bear as a representation of the scene in which Denahi mourns the presumed death of his brother, Kenai, and resolves to hunt down and kill the bear that he believes is responsible. The score begins with soft flute notes as Denahi kneels over Kenai's torn clothing and mourns his brother's supposed death. The piece carries through his mourning, with Kenai's anguished cry mixing in with the instrumental. Finally, as Denahi ties Kenai's totem to his spear and resolves to hunt down the bear, the score ends with a sinister musical flourish.
