5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, February 3, 2002
This review is from: Gosford Park: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (Audio CD)
I don't usually buy soundtracks, but music was such an integral part of the experience of seeing this movie that I just had to get the CD. It is wonderful. The highlights, of course, are the Ivor Novello songs, which Jeremy Northam (what a surprise) sang so very well. His style and phrasing were just so appropriate for the period that it was almost like stepping back in time and listening to all those vintage Coward songs as sung by stars of yesteryear. I was not very familiar with Novello songs before this movie, but I am quite a fan now. As for the rest (by Patrick Doyle), they were quite complementary to the period and the story, while standing out on their own as wonderful pieces. I've played this CD incessantly since I bought it. (I've also seen the movie twice, and just like the CD, it bears repeating.) I highly recommend both this CD and the movie.
