***Having "You Must Love Me" in the score is certainly required now, and I can see that some people who know the show well would find this difficult to accept (I did at first) but I grew to appreciate its presence in the score, and in many ways it serves a valuable function in calming the seas after the turbulent waltz and before the final sequence..... it's akin to "Could We Start Again, Please?" in SUPERSTAR... which is my favourite song in that show. Musically, even, they're similar-- plaintive ballads of realization and regret.****

You make an interesting argument, but since "Eva's Lament" (or whatever the title of her final song) is also a plaintive ballad of realization and regret, doesn't the inclusion of "You Must Love Me" right before it create a redundancy?
