Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine has revealed that she "nearly wept" after hearing a choir sing the track she wrote after watching Charlize Theron's performance in Snow White and the Huntsman.

Florence was almost moved to tears when she listened to her song Breath Of Life being recorded by professional musicians and a 60-member choir for the upcoming fantasy movie's soundtrack.

She told MTV News of the experience, "We went in and demoed the track (with) these big, clattering drums, huge bass sounds and everything was very intense... And it was amazing to see the music we played being turned into this amazing orchestral thing."

She added, "You feel in a bit of a way like you're kind of making it up as you go along, and then when you see it done, laid out before you in such a beautiful, orchestral fashion, it's really incredible... I love choirs and I love choral music, and there was a 60-piece choir singing the vocal parts that I had written. When the baritones came in, I nearly wept, it was so emotional."

Welch also admitted that it was Theron's performance as creepy Queen Ravenna who inspired the song, stating, "The Queen is just this incredible character; so hungry for life but so dead inside. She's sort of eternal, but inside there's nothing. She's kind of like charcoal or something. She has this thirst for youth and for life, but for what kind of life? This darkness, but she's so beautiful, so it's this kind of juxtaposition between beauty and, ultimately, death."

Snow White And The Huntsman, which stars Twilight's Kristen Stewart as Snow White, is due to hit theatres in June (2012).
Are you excited to hear Florence's track for the film?
