I am not a big Horner fan (the only score that I enjoy by him other than this is Willow), but this score does not fail to please. The score starts out in a very light way, but it quickly descends into a darker phase of its previous self. The climax being The Car Chase (not since Kundun have I heard such a track). But it returns itself to the air in which it began, with a wonderful performance by singer Charlotte Church. I encourage those who are fans of classical crossover music (or just classical, if you're open to it), Horner fans, or just the average schmoe who doesn't really to listen to scores to pick up the score, or at least get the track listing and burn it (I know I did).
