I wonder if the title should be So Ra No Wo To instead of Sora no Woto.

When I added the several albums from the same anime, I struggled to find an official romanization of this title, but didn't come across with such. So I concluded So Ra No Wo To was a popular fan romanization if more faithful to the original katakana. Considering searching with less than 3 characters is discarded, I think Sora no Woto should be at least placed at the third line.

"Sora no Woto" was the romanization used at the Fantasy Comes Alive concert that I attended last week (they performed Yuki Kajiura's opening theme). No idea how official that is, since they could have very well left it to the organizers to come up with their own romanizations.

Track 8, an arrangement of "Amazing Grace", is credited in the booklet with "Unknown Composer" (...). I find that quite funny since the composer of "Amazing Grace" is well-known - it's John Newton.

Isn't John Newton just a lyricist? Multiple sources say the composer of "Amazing Grace" is unknown.

Edit: Apparently, I did the same mistake, too!

I thought it was William Walker who composed the music. That's who Wikipedia has listed, so I'm just going off of that.

If I'm understanding what I'm reading correctly William Walker was the one who put Amazing Grace to the folk song "New Britain", which is the most common version of Amazing Grace heard, he did not however write the piece.

I see. Alright then, removed him completely since it's only a instrumental rendition, no lyrics whatsoever.

I made a couple of changes on the newly submitted English tracklist, but I think it still need some checking by someone fluent in French (particularly the translation for Bruine assassine)

This day --> That day (ci vs. la)
After rain or shine --> Every Cloud has a Silver Lining (Actually a French proverb)

Every Cloud has a Silver Lining -> A quelque chose malheur est bon (prov)
the sun is shining again after the rain / everything's fine again -> apres la pluie le beau temps (loc)

note that your translation is different from dictionary

if I chose the "sun" thing, that's because in the anime there is rain
