This is also fascinating as its what happens at the conclusion of the Epiklysis when the Host is Concecrated, again its in the correct order, between Kyrie and Agnus Dei

Its also got special extra meaning, as we know the Celebration of the Eucharist is the feeding on body and blood of Christ, some denominations take that very it is juxtaposed within a film about cannibalism.

All that...from a backing track!
That song is really awesome. That would make a great entrance song.
