There Might Be a Hidden Vocal Track in the Score for Sleeping Beauty

Join us in this dark world of unsubstantiated speculation

The 1959 version of Sleeping Beauty is one of the most visually stunning films Walt Disney ever made. You have likely seen this masterpiece upwards of 100 times, and, like me, consider yourself an expert on its nuances.
So imagine my utter shock when a seemingly HIDDEN VOCAL TRACK arose during my last viewing; flummoxed doesn’t even cut it. Smash your computer or phone up to your ear during this scene, and listen closely. Do you hear Sleeping Beauty’s name, “Aurora,” being subtly sung beneath the melody?
