Format: Audio CD
Although this CD is full of great music from the entire series (one of the best ever produced by the BBC, in my opinion), it is worth purchasing solely for the inclusion of the haunting, mesmerizing rendition of the classic old English song, "The Three Ravens", as sung by Sarah Leonard. This is the song used during the episodes dealing with Queen Elizabeth, and also at the end of the entire series, as Mr. Schama closes the series with the most noteworthy quote, "History ought never be confused with nostalgia" ... yet listening to these songs you cannot help but feel proud to be British, proud to be a part of Biriths history. Truly, a great listen here.

The choice of music to accompany the BBC series is truly superb. The differing voices used plus some really original adaptations of period tunes provides a musical experience that should not be missed by anyone willing to try something atmospheric and thought provoking. I particularly liked Sanctus followed by Immortal as opening tunes that set the mood for the whole CD. Other favourites are How should I My True Love Know, Madimi and The second version of The Three Ravens.

John Harle shows yet again his brilliant style of music making and directing. From start to finish the album takes the listner on a trip through space and time, leaving him flabbergasted at the end. A real 'must have' cd.

An absolutely fantastic compilation of period music to touch the senses and entwine you through the historical masterpiece that is History of Britain. As if travelling through time you find yourself hypnotised by the haunting vocals of Sarah Leonard and Emma Kirkby and understand that music has always carried the soul no matter what period of history we exist.
