Customer Review

on 25 February 2007
I've been re-watching Sharpe, and having long-admired the music of the series, decided it was about time I bought the soundtrack.

I must admit that having read the mixed reviews, it was not without a sense of trepidation that I ordered the CD.

I'm happy to report that it lived up to my expectations, and more. From the opening bars of "The Overture" to the closing track, "Sharpe's Song/ Sharpe's Theme", I was captivated and transported to that time and place many of us have grown to love: Spanish mountains, French skies, loyal partisans, valiant heroes and repugnant villains, Waterloo, Wellington and of course, the Ninety-Fifth Rifles.

Let's clear a few things up.

No, not every piece of music recorded for the Sharpe series is on the CD.

Yes, there is plenty from the series, and the other songs - especially the vocal pieces - give a nice "flavour" of both the period and spirit of the Napoleonic Wars.

No, puritans who don't believe old instruments should be mixed with new will not like this.

Yes, everyone else will.
