The 3D, CG-animated family comedy Arthur Christmas, an Aardman production for Sony Pictures Animation, at last reveals the incredible, never-before seen answer to every child's question: So how does Santa deliver all those presents in one night? The answer: Santa's exhilarating, ultra-high-tech operation hidden beneath the North Pole. But at the heart of the film is a story with the ingredients of a Christmas classic--a family in a state of comic dysfunction and an unlikely hero, Arthur, with an urgent mission that must be completed before Christmas morning dawns.
The score is composed and produced by Harry Gregson-Williams and includes the song "Make Someone Happy" performed by Bill Nighy. British-born composer Harry Gregson-Williams is best known for his scores for Kingdom Of Heaven and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.

The whole album has a consistently high quality throughout. The main theme for the film gets its first showing in "Mission Control" and is reprised several times across the album. "Goodbye Evie" contains a wonderful statement of of this, but other tracks have a different sound. For example,"Operation Christmas"has a wintery bond sounding going on with some electronic beats in with the mix (but this just aids the rhythm and isn't overtly obtrusive). "Arthur's Sadness" is one of the more slower melancholic tracks - but that said, the writing for strings and piano is sublime. "Christmas Morning" has a tranquil opening with some really pleasant writing for strings and piano before a final burst of the main theme ends the main score portion of the album.
"Dash Away" deserves a special mention and is my favourite track on the album - the main theme for the film gets multiple arrangements with orchestra and choir and it really does sound stunning.Read more ›
