EMI Classics release 'Fifty Shades of Grey - The Classical Album', a 15-track album featuring classical music personally selected by author E L James herself and referenced in her bestselling Fifty Shades book trilogy.

Says James of the new compilation album: 'I am thrilled that the classical pieces that inspired me while I wrote the Fifty Shades Trilogy are being brought together in one collection for all lovers of the books to enjoy.'

The three novels in the Fifty Shades trilogy (Fifty Shades of Grey, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed) are published by Vintage Books and have sold more than 20 million copies in the U.S. (the trilogy has sold 31 million copies worldwide). The books' various references to classical music have spurred sales of the pieces mentioned even going so far as to cause Spem in Alium, a 16th century motet for 40 voices by Thomas Tallis, to jump to the top of the classical charts in the UK.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely fifty shades of grey cd 14 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I haven't read the book but came across the cd through listening to classic fm. I immediately wanted to buy it but have to admit was put off by the negative reviews. Thanks to more recent positive reviewers I decided it was worth a go and I'm so glad I bought it. This is a lovely compilation cd that includes many of my favourites but which also introduces me to one or two tracks which I wouldn't have thought my thing. Many of the performers are renowned (Rattle, The Tallis Scholars etc) and overall the recording quality is good. My only criticism is that one or two tracks are a bit crackly and hissy - enough to notice but not so much as to be irritating. If you are looking for a compilation cd of relaxing, chill out music don't be put off buy it!

3.0 out of 5 stars mmmmmm, 13 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this I bought because I read all three books, I wanted to hear all the music that was spoken of in the books, I am glad I bought it, not for the sexual reasons spoken of in the book, but purely for the enjoyment of the music

Mainly tracks you would hear on other classic selections, but a few totally different ones thrown in to make it not quite bog-standard.

Nothing to shout about really, I could think of many more classical pieces which are more moving than most of these.

My wife listens to this album constantly she finds it relaxing. I have to agree it's perfect to relax to after a day at work.

Not suitable for teenagers with a passion for techno music.
