and 1 more thing....when you are composing, do you compose the melody before the lyrics or try to make the melody fit the lyrics?

It is different every time. I think for WWWY I wrote the melody ('s) first on an acoustic guitar (which I can't play). Then I began to search for lyrics.
Heroes and Dragons lyrics were written first, then Fred put music to them. Most of Lex Rex was done music first though.

The notes for 'and face the final king' are G# G# G# E# G# F# ... in the choir score. The tenors sang the melody there, complemented by the baritones in harmony below them -- the other voices (S/A) sang the other lyric line, also in 2 parts. I loved that double choir section!
