5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent, majestic and moving
I think Hans Zimmer's score for The Da Vinci Code is absolutely beautiful; sacred, mystical, uplifting music of the soul. My particular favourite is `Chevaliers de Sangreal', a piece I play over and over again for its magnificent strings and that soaring crescendo to the towering finale ~ a supreme piece of music. The whole score is dramatic and evocative of the power...

This review is from: The Da Vinci Code (Audio CD)
I think Hans Zimmer's score for The Da Vinci Code is absolutely beautiful; sacred, mystical, uplifting music of the soul. My particular favourite is `Chevaliers de Sangreal', a piece I play over and over again for its magnificent strings and that soaring crescendo to the towering finale ~ a supreme piece of music. The whole score is dramatic and evocative of the power and mystery of the church down the ages. I loved the film and the book, and now through this wonderful CD I can relive both. Highly recommended for the sheer beauty of the choral works and the superb musical compositions.

The music so beautiful underlies the subject matter of the film. Zimmer is a highly talented composer, right up there with the likes of John Barry. Like Barry, his score is not about the composer, but about the subject. Zimmer's score feels church-like and as rich and old as a tapestry - or the paintings of Da Vinci himself. Well worth buying whether you are into the idea of the film or not.

This review is from: The Da Vinci Code (Audio CD)
first of all, great service from the amazon.co.uk!

i ordered the cd on tuesday evening and i got it in front of my door on friday morning!!(take into consideration that i live in greece)

well HANS ZIMMER is one of the best composers! when i listen to the cd i feel like escaping from the routine in a mysterious and magical way..! the armony of this music really keeps me in balance with the technocratic everyday life...HANS ZIMMER really knows the right way to play with our senses via his music...just like DAN BROWN did via "The Da Vinci Code"...

HANS ZIMMER really accomplished to "transform" the mystery of the book "The da vinci code" in (divine) music...

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Beautiful !!!, 20 May 2006

This review is from: The Da Vinci Code (Audio CD)
Hans Zimmer has excelled himself - yet again! I have listened to his compositions for many years, mainly his movie scores which are so varied and so many including the likes of Gladiator, King Arthur and Black Hawk Down. This has to be my favourite. It has that spiritual purity and Celestial Grace from the great choral work together with the beautiful violin solo from Track 5 "Quodis Arcana " and yet has all the drama and mystery you would expect from Hans Zimmer. I have not yet seen the film and I am half way through reading the book but the music is worth purchasing just for it's beauty.

Hans Zimmer stands side by side with that of John Williams, James Horner and Jerry Goldsmith as one of the greatest movie composers of our time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shore, Williams... and now Zimmer, the third one from the best ones, 20 May 2006
By 
This review is from: The Da Vinci Code (Audio CD)
Hans Zimmer is one of the best known composers in Hollywood history and he shows again his quality and his talents in great movie The Da Vinci code. Music follows direct line from the beginning to the end of movie, with typical and personal Hans Zimmer style. There is two tracks that comes up from cd and they are "Chevaliers De Sangreal" and "Kyrie For The Magdalene". "Chevaliers De Sangreal" is like cream on top of tasty cake and the brass instrument in it was something that I have heard since Lord of the rings and Star Wars movies. "Kyrie For The Magdalene" is placed to a little bit wrong place in movie what I think, it is playing while the end credits is rolling off. Still it is as good as "Chevaliers De Sangreal" and it is worth of listening, and that's why it comes more up in soundtrack than in movie. So five stars for good soundtrack that helps movie to come better and better and soundtrack will say those things that movie won't tell, and of course that is the idea of film music. If you like the movie, you will like this soundtrack also.
