This review is from: THE BORGIAS (Audio CD)
This is my first soundtrack by composer Trevor Morris, and what a soundtrack it is. A fantastic orchestral and choral effort, The Borgias is one of my favourites of 2011.

There are so many tracks that I won't go into each one, but will comment on the ones I thought stood out. The album starts off with the opening titles and is an absolute beauty. Starting off with solo guitar followed shortly by strings and choir, it really builds into something pretty epic. I liked track 28, "Cesare and Ursula Make Love" - the writing for strings is great, and whilst the melody and harmonies are simple, it is very effective. The finale track Lineage of the Family is stunning, and at 6 minutes 45, it is the longest track on the album. It has the chance to build slowly over the duration with some stunning string and choral writing in the last 3 minutes or so. Aside from the dissonant "Rovere Finds A Body in His Bed", I can't think of a single bad track on the album.

The album is approximately 77 minutes in length which is a lengthy release in terms of TV soundtracks. There are 38 tracks present, and that means the majority of the album is made up of relatively short cues. Normally this would bother me because it means the flow of the album is greatly disturbed. Not in this case however - it flows like a dream and whoever edited the CD together has done a spectacular job. The sound quality is great, and the quality is exceptionally crisp.

Overall, this is a soundtrack not to be missed. There is some amazing orchestral and choral writing present. Trevor Morris is a name I will look out for again, and I strongly recommend purchasing this if you love scores or soundtracks.
