This music is so emotionally stirring, it can only speak for itself. (So what am I here for? I guess I want to convince you.) Track #9 is perfect. It begins so sadly, and only a few instruments play. But when the full orchestra comes in, the power of the moment and its significance can stir your emotions. I love #13 because it almost shows the other side of the beautiful sadness. Hope.
If you can relate to anything I said, I think you'll love this CD.
Some might find the ceremonical chants and percussion heavy alongside such emotional orchestra pieces, but I think that they are two voices that need to be heard in order for the story to be understood.
My favorite tracks are the Main Theme and "Regaining a Son" (the penultimate track).
It's an interesting piece of history that one is not likely to encounter except for this film. I would recommend it to anyone with a
curiosity about different areas of the world - or - just anyone who likes a really well presented story.
Most of the even numbered tracks could have been left off the soundtrack album. The rest are truly beautiful and make the CD worth the purchase price. Having a CD where you love half the tracks is about as good as it gets with CDs these days!
