I really enjoyed the series and the music was so good, that I ordered the soundtrack.
Pierre Aubin
All in all though the music really is good, capturing the feel and atmosphere of 12th century England and the personal stories intertwined within the plot.
Brian DeFazio
I can't wait for the season 4 score release of The Tudors, which is coming very soon.

I love the music, I really do, and it will go great next to LOTR and other epic film soundtracks.

Asa medievalist (and a seminarian) I would have appreciated a track of the gregorian chant that was part of the series, it was done very well, and it is unfortunate its not here.

All in all though the music really is good, capturing the feel and atmosphere of 12th century England and the personal stories intertwined within the plot.

Morris mayhem continues with the score release to the Showtime miniseries. Right now Trevor Morris is at the top of his game and is composing the best music I've heard from him. The Pillars Of The Earth is a grand scale score done in the most elegant fashion. Don't expect a balls to the wall epic score because that is not what this is.

Elegance is the key word here. It was the word that was surfacing in my head all the while during my first listen. There are many scores for films and series in this genre that can be brash and feel forced. What the music does here at least for me is highlight the subtleties in the story while still painting a beautiful atmosphere. The wonderful instrumentation and arrangements make the whole score feel incredibly organic. The main theme opens and closes the album while the rest of the selections are smaller scaled melodies (in comparison to the grand main titles theme). I'd also like to acknowledge how well the selections work on the album as a cohesive listening experience. From the times I've had a chance to talk to composers about their work all of them have mentioned how hard it is to narrow down their work to fit on a CD. You can imagine how hard it must have been for Trevor with this being a miniseries, but I really feel like each track leads into the next. Never did I feel the CD experience to be choppy or incomplete.

The flavors and sounds Morris uses here really build a world and an atmosphere. He uses vocals at times which add an exotic feel. Those who are familiar with his work on The Tudors will recognize some of that style slip in here, but overall the soundscape is unique to the story. I truly love the music here. It really represents such a complete and mature effort from Morris.

You will like this soundtrack but only if you saw the TV series since I feel soundtrack evoke what you saw in the series. But for background music this is fine for that too.

I loved the series and the music. My only complaint is that each piece is over so fast. Other instrumental soundtracks seem to have longer pieces.

I liked the series, and I liked the music in particular. The themes are epic with many good musical ideas. The sound is still a bit Zimmerish, but I believe Trevor Morris has done a good job and is developing his own style that comes through on this CD.

Why is the track listing and item description wrong?
I think the real question now is, When will they notice they've got it wrong?

Track #1 Doesn't work
I can confirm that this happens as well. One of the best tracks on the album!
