Before filming Sweeney Todd, each actor was given an instrumental/ backing track of the songs they had to sing. Johnny Depp was in L.A. at the time, and Helena Bonham Carter was in London. They each sang their parts of “A Little Priest” separately, and the two pieces were then combined and sent to Tim Burton and Stephen Sondheim. This was the first time either of them had heard Depp and Bonham Carter sing together.
