When i heard that there would be some Ivor Novello music in Gosford Park, i immediately decided to go see it, even though i'm not really a 'whodunnit' person. I was more than pleasantly suprised. Apart from the fact that the film is a delight to watch, the score is one of the best i've ever heard. I think Ivor Novello would have been pleased with the result-Jeremy Northam did him justice. At 16, i haven't had much experience in music, but i know when i hear it played and sung with real talent.
I love all the tracks, but the real gems are 'The Land That Might-Have-Been', a beauty if you're a hopeless romantic like me, and 'And Her Mother Came To' is a right giggle if you listen to the words. As usual, the old ones are the best. God Bless Robert Altman for his insight and style in choosing a beautiful score.

What ho! to all potential buyers...
This soundtrack combines the original score (by Patrick Doyle, who also wrote the music to Sense and Sensibility) and some very fine songs by Ivor Novello et al.
The film is an ensemble masterpiece looking at the very personal, political and social changes at work around a murder at a Country House weekend. This soundtrack does not disappoint... it also reflects the characters' states-of-mind, positions within society and the household and above all, it exemplifies the wonderfully mannered songs of the period.
Novello is played by Jeremy Northam, a fine British actor, who dazzles with his singing on this CD. He is wonderful as the movie star entertainer, providing songs and music for the bored Shooting set. If you enjoyed the humour of the film (and Northam's performance in particular) - you'll love this CD!
The soundtrack stands alone as a wonderfully evocative exploration of the worlds 'upstairs' and 'downstairs', whilst never really taking sides. Doyle has created a superb soundtrack with a blend of romance, love, cynicism and humour.
Even if you haven't seen the film yet, this CD is a great addition to the collection as it is not repetitive or dull, as so many soundtracks can be. It does not have endless loops or reprises.
Instead, it creates a world for the listener, evoking and conjuring views of 1930s Britain and a post-Second World War optimism.
Funny, mannered, clever songs coupled with fantastic original music - a wonderful tie-in to the film, whilst also being a great CD in its own right.
Dress for dinner and dance the evening away to this CD!

Patrick Doyle's music for this wonderful 1930s country-house murder mystery, with its fabulous cast, is attractive, if necessarily fragmentary. What are especially pleasurable, however, are the interpolated instrumental numbers and songs by Ivor Novello, sung in exactly the right intimate style by the actor, Jeremy Northam, who plays Novello in the film and is accompanied on the piano by Christopher Northam. (The fact that the actor looks nothing like the composer is by the way.) The stand-out number is on the last track of the CD, The Land Of Might-Have-Been, a haunting song that unerringly sums up Novello's now lost world of romantic musicals.

The technicality of Jeremy Northam's singing and piano playing is really rather good, but he is an ex-chorister. His brother Christopher plays on the CD of the soundtrack, and the lyrics of Ivor Novello are wonderful. I had the melodies for a couple of the songs in my head for days.

This CD is a wonderful chance to hear the melodies of the 20's era that capture the music of those days. Jeremy Norton's singing is lovely on his tracks, and is wisfully like Ivor Novello. It was a great film and this CD is a perfect match for listening.
