John Frizzell and Randy Edelman do a superb job in this soundtrack. Although Frizzell composed the majority of the music, you can still hear a little of the original Gettysburg theme from time to time. One improvement I think they made was the addition of vocals to the music. Gods and Generals and VMI Will Be Heard From Today are good examples of these vocals. I'm listening to the music now, and WOW, it has EVERYTHING! Even if you don't like the Civil War, and you don't want to see the movie, you have to hear this music!!
The DVD was great addition to the soundtrack. It has the theatrical trailer on it, as well as two music videos and six or so deleted scenes. Face it, if you're a Civil War fanatic, the DVD alone is worth the overall cost!
This soundtrack does a superb job of including the many feelings of the war while still packing the epic punch of Gettysburg. It displays everything from the tragedy and the horror to the hopeful and the inspirational, no matter what side they were on, and in the end, it offers us something that is truly American.
Usually I am not a big fan of artists making a song for the movie, instead preferring entirely orchestrated soundtracks. However, Mary Fahl's "Going Home" and Bob Dylan's "Cross the Green Mountain" are two very big exceptions to that rule. "Going Home" is hauntingly beautiful, with a touch of Celtic influence that does good things for it.
If it ended there, the package would have been wonderful. However, the bonus DVD made it even better. The music videos of Fahl and Dylan's songs are great, and the 6 deleted scenes whet your appetite for February 21.
If you haven't bought this soundtrack yet, I would recommend you do it ASAP.
In addition to the fine music, the set also includes some nice extras, including a great video by Mary Fahl singing "Going Home" and some other nice-to-haves. This album is a fabulous value.
The second disc in the package is a DVD which includes the trailer, the two Dylan and Fahl music videos, and more interestingly, six deleted scenes from the film itself that strangely are not even available on the actual DVD.

A bit disappointing. After such a great and masterful arrangement in Gettysburg, Edelman opts for a more subdued tones for this movie. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Jorge A. Torres
