If you have ever found yourself seeing the wisdom or beauty of a sad moment, listen to this CD. No, this CD was not meant to complement your happiest days and your most exciting moments. If that's what you're looking for, this is the wrong CD. But if you've ever seen sadness, and I'm sure you have, you might see the drama, the experience, and the sacred beauty that attaches itself to only the purest of sad moments. If you don't understand, listen to the sample of track #3. Think of something beautiful or sacred to you, and think of its worst day. It almost makes it even more beautiful, doesn't it? This music is made for those moments or situations, or to reflect on those very things. If nothing else, it reminds you of the same drama in the movie it accompanied.
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.

This film score is one that simply strikes the emotional chords. The beautiful cello solos by Yo-Yo-Ma enhanced the feelings of sadness and loneliness experienced by the character in the film. As I listened to this score, I could vividly see the towering snow-capped Himilayas in my mind. This score is both haunting and lovely at the same time, and it is another one of John William's masterful successes.

This soundtrack was once lent to me ... it caught my attention that Yo-Yo Ma was the soloist in some of the performances. I was immediately won over by the rich, moving compositions of this collection.
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).

This brooding orchestral feast features a romantic main theme reminiscent of Nino Rota's great Italian film music. The cello solos are beautiful and the secondary themes are woven skillfully into the tapestry of the story. It is interesting to compare this score with the similar film "Kundun" and the more abstract score by Philip Glass.

This movie is so interesting. The scenery is beautiful, the story-line is interesting and the actors are just superb in their roles.
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.

Love Williams, and I've listened to his music for decades, but this one is just a tad too somber, brooding and minor. What's missing are the elevating tracks (such as "For Gillian" in a creepy score like the Fury) to just pop the listener out of the cloudy gloom after awhile. I won't deny that the orchestrations and cello performances are very well done, but listen to this enough and you just want to curl into a ball and cry.

The CD is wonderful, relaxing, beautiful. It is as delightful as the movie. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys classical music.

The main theme (7 minutes) is exquisite and full of emotion. The wide range of instruments and sense of movement is wonderful.
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!
