In my opinion, it's a very fitting final encore for one of the greatest producers of all time who actually retired years ago.
It was actually Olivia who had the final say, and she ended up opting for the strings.
As much as George Martin was involved, I think more credit has to be given to his son on this one. George's hearing is basically a goner. It was Giles who really did most of the work.
