First of all,this score is worth purchasing because there are three musical styles contained by it:ethnic music by instruments such as Irish Uilleann pipes and Iranian ney flutes,which give the music a distinct,otherwordly feel to it,symphonic music (soft and gentle brasses,woodwinds and strings,further accompanied by percussion),and new age music also appear at the style of Enigma through ethereal vocals.Secondly,most of the music is relaxing,soft and gentle,and has a distinct and otherwordly feel to it to illustrate the wonders of Earthsea,and the process as the young wizard Ned learns to control his emotions,wishes,magical powers and learns the power of words,and by doing so,discover his true identity,his own inner self,and became Earthsea' s most powerful and great magician.
Secondly,there are some darker and suspenseful tunes to reflect to the dangers of self-discovery,and the real dangers that await travellers in the fantasy world of Earthsea,and the plotting of certain characters.Thirdly,there are some action tracks,too,to illustrate when the forces of evil (Kargides and other things) attack.
Jeff Rona combine the above mentioned three musical styles well,and the result of combining them is breath-takingly beautiful music!
