Georges Delerue's own Reqieum
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I have loved and been deeply moved by the many works of this talented composer for as long as I can recall. That his best remembered (for myself at least) scores dealt with Catholicism only enhanced my appreciation. He gave the world such scores as A Man for all Seasons (1966), Agnes of God (1985?) True Confessions (1979) and this his swansong. As with many composers of film music the main leitmotif will be reprised & reworked throughout the movie but this isn't mindless repetition...it is common to all classical music. The last piece of music the Libera Me (Free Me O Lord) sounds like a requiem...to the slaughtered Huron who ended up putting their faith in a Catholic God only to be wiped out by the ferocious Alquonquins and disease....yet just as the music mirrors the film story....this world isn't the end of life but where perhaps the seeds to life eternal will be sown."
Fantastic bits with some dryer moments
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This soundtrack has some great moments especailly the Christian hymn at the end which is just a heartbreaking piece. Half the tracks just don't sound good and that problem is exacerbated by the brilliance of the other half of the tracks which are great. The main theme is phenomenal."
