Summary 4.2

In Act 4.2 Juliet returns home all happy and she agrees to marry Paris in two days if it pleases her parents. Lord Capulet is overjoyed and decides to move up the wedding day to tomorrow but that makes the Juliet change the plan.

Reasoning for the song

I chose this particular song because the instrumentals portray the melancholy of this scene. Also the instrumentals portray suspenseful parts for the purpose that Juliet is scared and prays before she takes the vile. She prays because she's scared that the vile may not work and she will wake up tomorrow, the vile will kill her, or that the vile will work but she will wake up before Romeo and Friar arrive to release her from the tomb.
