Short-schrift on gorgeous music!
on 22 March 2005
John Barry won an Oscar for this score and it still holds up as a classic. Each selection is moving and heartfelt. Barry is at his best here, by pulling emotions out and just barely keeping under the radar of over-whelming emotional sweeps. There is only one drawback to this soundtrack and that is that it is only a little over (33) thirty-three minutes long. That's a tragedy. You might consider buying the Royal Scottish National Orchestra's recording. I found it to be nearly identical and it certainly does justice to Barry's work.
