Editorial Reviews

Jóhann Jóhannson's FatCat debut is the haunting product of a collaboration between the Icelandic composer and acclaimed American avant-garde filmmaker Bill Morrison (Decasia). The Miners' Hymns is the score for Morrison's film of the same name, a collection of richly evocative imagery treating the plight of coalminers in Northeast England. The Miners' Hymns is performed by a 16-piece brass ensemble led by noted Icelandic conductor Gudni Franzson and features the Durham Cathedral organ and organist Robert Houssart.

Format: Audio CD
I am a fan of Johann Johannson, whose work is generally in the elctronic/ambient genre. The Miner's Hymns is melodic, and may be more accessible to less adventurous listeners. The brass ensemble is lovely and the blending of electronic and acoustic instruments is seamless. This is a wonderful piece and a great introduction to one of the leading figures in electronica. Highly recommended.

This is a beautiful soundtrack that has such a noble quality to it. Johannsson always makes music that is a well balanced blend of ambient electronica and traditional orchestral writing. The best song on this album is a testament to this, ("The Cause of Labour Is the Hope of the World") and it alone is reason enough to own this album.

There is also a DVD available now of the film THE MINERS' HYMNS by Bill Morrison, the film for which this is the soundtrack (w 5.1 surround sound). And did you see that the NEW YORKER critic just called this the best film score of the year? Watch the DVD (which has no dialouge, only the music as the sound track). It's great.
