This is a lovely CD, a mixture of calm, dynamic and atmospheric. Unlike some soundtracks, this hangs together very well as a CD in its own right whereas some soundtracks don't work so well without the film too.

Highly recommend it!

Patrick Doyle's finest score 26 Jun 2000
By Mr. Christian Lauliac - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is certainly one of my top 3 Patrick Doyle scores and a towering achievement. The score unfolds like a great romantic symphony encompassing several moods from serenity and inner peace ("In Pace"), to violence and lush gothic undertones ("The Ghost", "Now, could I drink hot blood"), and a finaly sense of joyous celebration ("Fanfare", "What Players are they?"). After listening constantly to Mr. Doyle's scores for "Henry V", "Much ado about nothing" and "Frankenstein", I thought he could never top such achievements and somehow he did: "Hamlet" is a masterpiece of thematic inventiveness and dramatic power. The playing is wonderful and the engineering is very clear, taking full advantage of Air Lyndhurst's glorious acoustics. If you are a fan of british classical music or a Shakespeare fan (or even better, a fan of Patrick Doyle), don't pass up this CD. Great film music. No: great music. Period!

A wonderful score 17 Nov 1999
By Joshua Saulle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although not as viscerally powerful as his Henry V score, Hamlet is, appropriately, much more meditative and introspective, making the extroverted sections (Fanfare, the Ghost, My Thoughts be Bloody, etc) that much more impressive. The only weakness I feel is the constant use of only two or three main themes with very little variation in their orchestration. However, that is a tiny quibble with an otherwise masterly score. Doyle's use of 20th century sounds (some atonal canonic writing and Stravinksyesque rhythms) gives this score just the right edge to balance the lush Romanticism of the main themes.

I think this is Doyle's best 24 Jun 2008
By the old guitarist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
"In Pace", sung by the most artful singer in the world, Placido Domingo, justifies the purchase of this recording. It's operatic and he's an opera singer but... "In Pace" doesn't sound "opera"; it sounds noble and romantic. I love film music and must own over six hundred score recordings. Of those, there are three or four which I regularly and wholeheartedly recommend to my friends and acquaintances who are classical musicians. Doyle's HAMLET is one of them.

There's a LOT of music on this disc - 76:25! - and it's a journey through many moods: reflections of introspective quietude and expressions of pride, tender love, confusion and anger not least among them. It's orchestral, of course, but much of it is almost chamber and intimate. Favorite tracks? All those which include the "In Pace" melody and the thrillingly ominous "Oh, Here They Come".

Melodious, Moving and Monumental! 18 Nov 2009
By HardyBoy64 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
While I love modern film scores with the wild action sequences (Hans Zimmer, etc), there is something so amazing when you find a score that plays out like a classical symphony. This score to the film "Hamlet" is just such a score. The music is melodious, moving and monumental. I highly recommend this!

Magnificent Score For An Epic Motion Picture. Shakespeare Brought To Life As Never Before. 4 July 2010
By HAMLET - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
After Patrick Doyle's moving, haunting, and epic scores for "Henry V," "Dead Again" & "Mary Shelley's Frankenstein," could he deliver once again for Kenneth Branagh's uncut and totally epic film version of what is arguably one of William Shakespeare's greatest plays? The answer is YES, YES, and YES. As with the movie itself, Patrick Doyle has created yet another score which is haunting, moving and epic all in one. If you loved the movie, you'll completely immerse yourself in the soundtrack. The first track is an extra bonus to this already epic score:
Placido Domingo. BUY the movie AND the soundtrack; if you can't buy the soundtrack, get it in mp3 files. They're worth it. "If it be not to come, it will be now; yet it will come. The readiness is all. If no man knows aught of what he leaves, what is't to leave betimes? Let be."
