5.0 out of 5 stars A Collection That Evokes Place and Time 25 Aug 2000
Format:Audio CD
In 1994, I was fortunate enough to spend 6 weeks taking courses on the grounds of Balliol College, Oxford University. In that beautiful, halycon summer, I felt as if all my days were accompanied by Barrington Pehloung's haunting theme from the Inspector Morse series.
I had been a big fan of the series from the beginning, more than half in love with the paradoxally sensitive and irrascible Morse. But while watching the series, I found my *true love* in the City of Oxford itself. Morse without the dreaming spires of Oxford is like Holmes without his foggy, Victorian London... only a shell of his true personality. During my sojourn there, I found that Pheloung's music intimately captured that symbiotic relationship between person and environment.
Imagine my delight when I found the music of man and city available on CDs. I bought all three and have nearly worn them out. I really cannot review them individually (though Vol. 2 is the one I play most often), since it is the entire collection that contains the paradoxal nature of the man and City it captures. And, like that paradox, the music soothes and uplifts, makes melancholy and inspires. Always, it haunts my dreams and my imagination and vividly recaptures my entire Oxford experience whole and alive for me.
I have only to hear the first few bars of the evocative theme to be transported back to Oxford. I am again walking the narrow streets and admiring the sun-washed palantine stone of Oxford's glorious buildings. The memory shines through my darkest days and lightens winter gloom. I can catch, just from the corner of my eye, the glimmer of a red Jag rounding the corner of the Broad or see a glimpse of a greying head entering the White Horse Pub.

I wanted to have the theme tune of Inspector Morse on CD - and got it - however have to put with other tracks which I am not so keen on.
