What I really like about film music is its wonderful way to tell a unique story through music. You don't necessarily need any kind of pictures nor moving happenings to know what is happening. Jerry Goldsmith was one of those wonderful artists, who could write musical stories for us. The Secret Of N.I.M.H. is one of the very best examples of what I mean. This is a score with so much little details and rich musical tapestry of themes that you will find something new with each listening. The Ambrosian Singers choir represents the awe and wonder of the animated fantasy story, and while the orchestra paints the big context of the story we can hear the mice through flute solos. This is absolutely one of my very favourite scores of all time. The Flying Dreams song is beautiful, The National Philharmonic Orchestra plays with emotion and Jerry Goldsmith has written a musical fairy tale matched only by his rejected score to Ridley Scott's Legend. This is truely an enchanting listening experience. *****
