I have listened to this music many times.
If you like this type of music and/or Adiemus, it's a good pick.
Adiemus and Palladio are probably his most famous works, deservedly so, as they are lovely and catchy. It's nice to hear the Diamond music outside of a commercial.
Dies Irae is one of the most driven pieces I've ever heard and I marvel that the chorus made it through the whole thing. It must have been a bitch to sing.
Allegrettango is one of the rare successful takes on a well known classical work (the 2nd movement of Beethoven's 7th Symphony). Usually such attempts fall flat on their face because they are so respectful of the original that they have no life or add nothing and the listener wonders what the point was. It's a sign of what a good composer Jenkins is that he pulled this off. My only reservation, a minor one, is that I wish he hadn't faded it out at the end, but it might not bother you as much as it does me.
The other selections are all winners.

This soundtrack has music from Avatar as well as others you may recognize. I love the chorus of African children in some of the tracks. Their style is distinctive and wonderful. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Colorado Gal
