Product Description

The musical score to the National Theatres acclaimed production of The War Horse is an integral part of the perfomance. Much has been made of the extraordinary puppets that bring the titular hero of Michael Morpurgo's original book to life, but the stage show takes a huge risk by not by not giving a voice to the creature who is the narrator of the original story. There are whole scenes without words, where the drama is provided entirely by puppets and the sweeping score. Add to that two of the finest voices in folk in Tim van Eyken and John Tams and this becomes a compelling CD in its own right. The songs, mostly written by Tams and voiced by van Eyken, are interspersed between the score's instrumental passages and create a narative thread of their own. Even for those not lucky enough to see the performance, there is much to enjoy here, whilst the audience are bound to delight in a souvenir that truly captures the emotive power of the production.

Format: Audio CD
The amazing production of War Horse at the National Theatre, now extended for a longer run, is one of the most absorbing and visually stunning theatrical productions I have ever seen. It really is an extraordinary theatrical experience and will affect you on many levels. Two aspects stood out for me- the fantastical puppetry of the Handspring Company and the music of Adrian Sutton. You will look at Joey the horse with amazement at the skill of the operators who have studied, and faithfully reproduce every tremor of a real horse's body and be moved and delighted by the wonderful musical score, so sensitively written. Now you can buy the CD, relive the whole wonderful experience and be moved all over again.

John Tams at his finest, proving that he still has that soulful edge to his unique and wonderful voice. As a stand alone album this is wonderful stuff. I have never seen War Horse but have heard of it, and this cd was bought because of Mr Tams and his previous reputation (search for the songs of Sharpe if you want more). I was not disappointed.

I am sure it would be much better had I seen the show, but as a piece of music this CD provides a good all round listen, evoking the times and story of War Horse. Highly reccomended.

This CD is absolutely fantastic. I bought it after watching and falling in love with the play. As music plays such an integral part in the play, if you loved the play you will love this, with the chance to hear all the songs from the play in full. I can't stop listening to mine. Even if you haven't seen War Horse the CD is still a beautiful collection of music, though you may find yourself buying tickets to see it :-)

Following seeing the performance of this excellent, thought provoking,spectacular and moving show I couldn't wait to download the music. I wasn't disapointed. As a "stand alone" musical experience this score works very well.
The orchestral part of the score is written by Adrian Sutton and the folk song adaptations are by the redoubtable John Tams. The music is moving and fits the subject perfectly. What is such a pleasure is that John Tams really knows his folk song in performance and in history, and as usual gets things absolutely right. Unfortunately, when others attempt it this is not always the case.
The whole thing blends well and is a pleasure to listen to on its own, as well as bringing back memories of a most memorable production.
