Comments about the soundtrack for Beyond Borders (James Horner)
if you remove track 6, this is a perfect 5 star score - a moving innocence and purity

Excellent from beginning to end. The main theme is so moving especially when performed by the children's choir. It gives it such an innocence and purity. In a way you can sense the spirits of the children in third world countries who have nothing.
The oboe used from time to time is so carefree and when (in track 3 and 12) it leads into the main theme, it's truly awe-inspiring.
The secondary theme is also very memorable and performed in several different ways with different instruments.
The reviewer complained about the electronics, and i agree track 6 is somewhat disturbing -- but that is really the only track with such a problem. If you remove it, this is a fanastic listen from beginning to end.
Beyond Borders is a superb score and is right next to Glory as my favoirte James Horner scores. It's a shame it has gone so unnoticed.

And to me, especially after seeing the film, Track 6 is as good and important as the rest...though quite subdued in the film.

I'm definetly with you there about the main theme, I get chills of joy at the half way point, when the choir ends and the bass strings take over...it's a perfect theme that needs to be discovered by all!
