The score to Downton Abbey is absolutely brilliant. The album is dominated by some sublime writing for strings and piano, with the occasional contribution from the oboe and other woodwind instruments (however this not frequent). The pace of the album is fairly slow, but this is not a bad thing. In some tracks ("Us and Them"), the pace is slightly high but never in danger of going into action mode.

The quality is consistently high across the duration of the whole album. Many of the tracks are fairly short, my favourites were "Downton Abbey - The Suite" and "Damaged". The additional length of these tracks mean that they could develop more musically, however that isn't to say the shorter tracks were bad.

I wasn't a fan of the Alfie Boe vocal tracks, however I can appreciate they fit the period well. I did quite like the Mary-Jess vocal contribution over the main Downton Abbey theme for the final track "Did I Make The Most of Loving You", with a soprano like quality to her voice.

Please be aware that this score is 55 minutes in length, and there may have been other pieces of music that you liked within the show that are not present on the album. I personally thought the track selection was excellent.

Overall, this score is simply wonderful and goes to show that TV soundtracks are not to be underestimated in terms of their quality. For fans of piano and string music, this album will be right up your street. The score fits the period well, and yet on album it does not sound dated. For fans of the score of the show, you will undoubtedly love it, and for film/tv score fans this is an album not to be missed.

The soundtrack to Downton Abbey will bring a smile to its fans, and will even impress those who have not watched the series! John Lunn's fierce and haunting score is unforgettable (particularly the Downton Abbey suite), and though variations of it are woven throughout the other tracks, each song remains distinct. An added bonus are the extra tracks created specifically for series two: Roses of Picardy and If You Were the Only Girl (In the World), sung by tenor Alfie Boe, are two popular wartime songs, and Did I Make the Most of Loving You, sung by Mary-Jess, which sets romantic lyrics to the Downton suite. All in all, this soundtrack is both an excellent addition to one's Downton Abbey memorabilia, and a music treat!

Arrived within 3 working days. I watched the Series on ITV1, it was brilliant. I took a rather good fancy at the music. It has it's own mark. You don't get many music like this nowadays.
Not all music heard in the series are on this CD but the suite is a mixture of most of them (which makes up for it).

A great buy! As you listen to the tracks, you recognise the scenes it was played in.

Julian Fellowes has created a programme which brings great pleasure to the country in a time of uncertainty by reflecting back on a time of even greater uncertainty. Moreover, it reflects his own and our longing for a bygone era.

The soundtrack is incredibly important in its success. I can still remember watching the opening credits for the first time and thinking how good the quality of the production was from the photography to the music. It really is quite beautiful.

This soundtrack is superb and the CD, while slightly repetitive, is in its own right a fine production of classical music. It reminds me a little of the Meet Joe Black soundtrack which I would also recommend.

Hope you enjoy too.

This is an absolutely fantastic soundtrack. It is filled with great scores from the series and a few extras that I wasn't expecting. Not until I bought this did I realise that the title music had words written for it and its an amazing song. It arrived swiftly and is a great addition to any Downton Abbey fans collection.

I think that one of the highlights of Downton Abbey has been the excellent music by John Lunn, and it seems odd that ITV and Decca etc have waited till the second series to release this CD. Consequently, as has been noted by another reviewer on here, not all the music, largely for very evocative and memorable piano and strings, heard in the first series and in the second series so far (by episode five) has been recorded here, and in particular the extraordinarily Samuel Barber-like emotional string music used in the scenes where the heir Captain Matthew Crawley is revealed as crippled, and soldier/footman William Mason dies after marrying Daisy on his deathbed in the second series, is excluded in favour of inserted songs sung by Alfie Boe. I think Alfie Boe a really great tenor, but somehow not on this disc, even singing songs from the time of the First World War actually used in the series (but not sung by him there), and their insertion here smacks of a desire by Decca to ensure the sale of the disc to his fans - a huge mistake in my opinion, as the John Lunn music is varied enough, indeed touched by a magical quality, that viewers will surely appreciate without them. They also break up the wholeness of the Lunn score, and seem out of place interspersed through his excellent music. I have downloaded all the Lunn music to my iPod, and left the First World War Songs unchecked for a happier homogeneous listening experience. But I hope that Decca will issue more or Lunn's music for Downton Abbey so we get the rest of his great score that has been sadly omitted from this (first!?) disc.
