Like Jeff Danna in his earlier score for the gentler companion piece, The Gospel of John, Debney eventually gets around to genuflecting to some Hollywood choral and melodic traditions (the gospels themselves having arguably helped lay the original foundations for Tinseltown's venerable three-act structure). There's nothing cheap about his music of triumph and redemption, rooted as ever in roiling currents of ancient spiritual mysticism. Gibson's vision of the Passion has had many second-guessing his motivations and choices, but Debney's rich, evocative score proves there's nothing wrong with his ears. --Jerry McCulley, Amazon.com
It is a score that changes from gentle tenderness to percussive strength, always interesting in its many moods. A few tracks have lush string arrangements, and track # 9, "Mary Goes to Jesus" takes flight on wings of sound.
Other contributors to the score are Jack Lenz, Shankar & Gingger, with lyrics by Lisbeth Scott.
It is all at once inspiring, peaceful, and energizing music, and a score that I will be listening to many years from now.
See the film, and hear the music; this is the rare stuff that changes lives with its beauty, power, and truth.
If you're after music that you can get lost in, this is for you.
