I recently purchased the box set and have enjoyed it. They have a nice colored booklet inside with photos from the movie and an overview of the battle. The music on disc #1 is quite powerful. Remember that there are only two basic musical themes to the film: and these are to be found in cuts #1 and #3. The rest of the discs play the theme songs over and over again at different volumes and speeds.The second disc is repetitive and weaker; but when Jeff Daniels reads the portion of the Gettysburg address at the end, you can close your eyes and hear him speaking to the 20th Maine in the film. Being a history teacher and having visited Gettysburg over the past summer, I loved the movie, and the soundtrack provides both easy listening and the chance to mentally replay the film everytime you see it. I recommend it.

I have been to Gettysburg with my wife and my sons many times (as visitors from Europe). My late cousin Gen.Phil Kearny is the only person commemorated on the battlefield who was already dead before the battle - see the New Jersay Memorial. So I take the subject very seriously and this score absolutely bowled us over. It is absolutely outstanding and the Cd has been played incessantly since it arrived from Amazon. Randy Edleman is to be congratulated on a superb piece of contrapunctal craftmanship and TNT on having the faith and dedication to complete the film. The reinactors are such a surperb group of people, without whom, this music would never have been written and we would have been so much poorer.

One of the best parts of the epic film "Gettysburg," which chronicles a major battle of the United States Civil War, is Randy Edelman's score. Beginning with his majestic, slightly mournful main title music, Edelman provides a perfect complement to this story of courage, tragedy, and triumph.
Edelman's music is at times suspenseful, at times victorious. There are also passages of tenderness. Overall, the music effectively evokes the personal sacrifice and often conflicted emotions of the men engaged in this struggle.

Randy Edelman has created one of the most beautiful, brilliant, yet haunting soundtracks ever to hit the shelves. The "original" CD is gorgeous--tears may fall during the first track. The diversity of the music, ranging from the quiet, beautiful "General Lee's Solitude" is in quite a contrast with pieces such as "Fife and Gun," and "The First Battle." For a taste of the brilliance and drive of the whole soundtrack, check out "Reunion and Finale," an incredible mixture of all the themes accented by almost deafening, driving percussion and brass.
Fans of the original Gettysburg will definately NOT be disappointed by the addition of the second CD, which features music from the film never before released. "Freemantle and Armistead" is a gorgeous composition from the very beginning. The reading of the "Gettysburg Address" by Jeff Daniels is a wonderful conclusion to the soundtrack. Accented by Edelman's score in the background, it is a very moving work.
Overall, the CD is an incredible, beautiful work, not receiving nearly the amount of credit it should...it is one of the most wonderful treasures hidden amongst the "Soundtrack" racks.

If you enjoy history you liked this movie. The soundtrack for this movie was outstanding! Being a decendent of a Civil War participant I enjoy historical recreations and this movie and its music were wonderful. The most trying time in our nations history and the music accentuated the drama, terror, heroism and even touching the moments. A wonderful 2 CD buy plus a bonus fact and fiquire booklet.

This music is absolutely incredible. There are huge, swelling songs like the "Main Theme" and "Reunion and Finale," and softer, more subdued ones like "Killer Angel" (one of my favorites), "Dawn," and "General Lee at Twilight." Another of my favorites is "Men of Honor" (yes, that IS "Men of Honor," not "Men of Morality." I think that reviewer is getting the song mixed up with "March to Mortality", the song of Pickett's Charge). Anyway, it's a completely peerless soundtrack that will put you back into the movie without ever turning on your TV. My mom cries every time she listens to "Reunion and Finale." I listen to this CD at about ten (out of thirty-two), but she likes pushing twenty!

A few weeks ago the San Francisco Symphony sent out a flyer to advertise concerts featuring symphonies of Mahler. "What other composer," the flyers said, "can write a single melody that encompasses the emotions of triumph and tragedy?"

The answer is: Randy Edelman, among others. This fine CD of the "Gettysburg" soundtrack makes clear how splendidly symphonic are the themes from this score. The main title-theme, depending on how it's presented and played, can depict exaltation, or sadness, or ferocity, or celebration, or dignitarian pomp, or an intimate recognition like love. It spans, in other words, the entire gamut of human emotions--all except boredom, which you can easily obtain from Mahler.

The "Gettysburg" soundtrack is authentically great music, and like all great music it stands by itself, fully enjoyable even without reference to the movie--though knowing the movie is a definite plus.
