This CD of the Howard Blake music for the Raymond Briggs classic story "The Snowman" should be in every child's collection of favorite music. The main theme is hauntingly beautiful and could create a mood for any child's creative daydreaming. The double bonus of the music alone, or the narrated version that is offered on the CD will whet your appetite for the animated video, which is a veritible feast for the eyes. "The Snowman" and the music by Blake is loved by any who have had the pleasure of knowing it, and this CD will allow many more children (and those who are still young at heart) to discover this treasure.

The first half of the CD is James Nesbitt reading the story of The Snowman. The original book was only pictures - this is the story based on the film (the visit to Father Christmas wasn't in the original book). Included in the digipak is the story in words along with pictures from the book. Perfect for reading along with a child. I'm not a great fan of James Nesbitt but he does do a great job here.

The second half is the soundtrack to the film including Walking In The Air.
I can't recommend this enough - it's delightful for young and old. And at less than £3 it's a bargain.

The Snowman is an age-old classic and has been a feature of all the Christmas holidays I can remember, along with Mary Poppins and theNutcracker. The beautiful music appeals to everyone and the simplicity ofthe story means that children of all ages enjoy it.
This particularversion is excellent in that it not only has the music but is alsobasically an audio book and tells the story as it is in the film, with themusic in the background.
So for the next generation of children stuck inside for the Christmasbreak and for their parents and indeed anyone who feels like reminiscing alittle, this is an brilliant (and might I add affordable!) buy. Enjoy!

This wonderful music is integral to the whole animated film, yet it reaches out to the listener and literally brings the magic to life. A superb composition played by the finest musicians create a breath-taking experience as you swoop and 'fly' over the landscape. The enchanting dance scene really sets your toes tapping as the whole warmth of this classic surrounds you. The ending is quite emotional as you realise the Snowman has melted and you feel like you have lost a dear friend, but the magic continues as the little boy finds the purple scarf, given to him by Father Christmas, in his pocket. You are left in a world of enchantment and wishing that there was a second Snowman story so you might never leave this land of childhood recaptured. Simply stunning.

This is definitly the original soundtrack of the 1982 film "peter auty" is the original singer. Aled jones did not record the song until after the film was made. However a recent dvd of the film used aled's recording instead. It also changed the intro to one with "David bowie". But rest asured this cd is the soundtrack of the film as released in 1982. It is a highly recomended cd.

The nostalgic melody from this album has been bittersweet with a lot of sweet for me since I was really young. I've always been enchanted by the perfectly whimsical, yet tragic sounds created in the score. It's amazing. I hope more people discover this gorgeous music.

In the deadly July heat and humidity found in the eastern US, I will play the soundtrack to "The Snowman", and it all comes back. All of the wonder and delight of the film comes rushing back, and I forget the dismal summer season. But even if I didn't know the film, the music stands well on its own. And the recording is a great monument to the British film recording industry. Buy it here; very difficult to find in the US.

The story is well narrated and you can listen to the music without any words in addition. My daughter loves listening to this in the car.
