Copperhead is the third of director Ronald F. Maxwell's ongoing series of films examining various elements and aspects of the American Civil War, the first two being the epic Gettysburg (1993) and its sequel Gods and Generals (2003). Based on the novel by Harold Frederic, Copperhead is the story of Abner Beech, a stubborn and righteous farmer from Upstate New York, who defies his neighbors and his government in the bloody and contentious autumn of 1862 by joining the Copperhead movement. For those who are unfamiliar with the term, "Copperheads" were Democrats located in the Northern United States of the Union who opposed Abraham Lincoln and the American Civil War, and wanted an immediate peace settlement with the Confederates; they were so named because many saw them as similar to their "poisonous snake" namesakes. The film stars Bill Campbell, Angus MacFadyen and Peter Fonda, and has opened in a small number of theatres in the United States to - unfortunately - generally negative reviews.

One aspect of Maxwell's films that have been almost universally praised have been their scores, with both Randy Edelman and John Frizzell arguably writing career-best works for Gettysburg and Gods and Generals. For Copperhead, Maxwell turned to a young French composer, Bordeaux-born Laurent Eyquem, whose most high profile works prior to Copperhead were for French-Canadian films: the TV movie Maman Est Chez le Coiffeur in 2008 (for which he was nominated for a Genie Award), the drama Lullaby for Pi in 2010, the comedy French Immersion in 2011, and the thriller La Peur de l'Eau also in 2011, as well as two scores for the "Thorne" series of police procedural movies in the UK.

Upon receiving the cd and putting into my player, the first track had me completely speechless. Rarely does a piece of music send chills up my spine upon a first listen. It usually takes me some time once I become familiar with a particular piece to really come to my full appreciation of it, not so with "Copperhead" it had me hooked the first time. Laurent's score is one of the best I've heard ever! And its not just the first track, the entire soundtrack only builds upon itself to a very beautiful ending. With the limited release and limited public knowledge of this film, I think it a shame that more people will not know about this score. Right now I cannot help but saying that Laurent deserves an Oscar for this work.

Being a person that pretty much exclusively listen's to soundtrack music, I'm always on the hunt for something new. This was a recommendation from Amazon and I gave it a try. I've never seen the movie but that doesn't stop me from buying a great score...and this is certainly one of those. This is also my first Laurent Eyquem score as well. After giving it a listen I looked up some information about the movie and it appears that this is a Civil War period piece and that the movie itself didn't do so well. That is a shame because folks like me, who love soundtrack music, might not even hear of this composer or music. The score is very fitting for a movie set during this time period. It isn't so much "Battle Music" but more emotional and melodic. There are a few pieces that showcases traditional music from the time like "Dev'l among tailors" and a very beautiful modern interpretation of "Slumber My Darling". The music is very moving and listening to the soundtrack can take you back to the times of the old west and Civil War periods. I highly recommend this score for any fan of the genre. Simply stunning and beautiful music indeed.
