The Best of the Doyle/Branagh Collaborations!
J. K. Moser | Flemington, New Jersey USA | 09/18/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Kenneth Branagh and Patrick Doyle have collaborated on together on several films, but they have yet to outdo Henry V their first collaboration. The movie itself is exceptional, and Patrick Doyle's score is fantastic. He captures the dark essence of the movie along with the medieval feel to the film perfectly in his music. From the opening bars of the first track to the swelling chorus of the final track Doyle writes great music. There are 2 tracks which belong in the masterpiece themes of music however. One is track 10: St. Crispins Day/ Battle of Agincourt. As Henry (Branagh) gives his St. Crispins Day speech, the music begins very low, slowly building with the strength of Branagh's voice until it reaches a climax at the same time as the speech. It is a great moment in cimatic/music history. The second notable track is number 12: Non Nobis Domine, an old Latin hymn adapted for the music. This track captures perfectly the aftermath of the Battle of Agincourt, as King Henry mourns for the baggage boys slaughtered by the French, and marvels at the great victory he won over the French. This cd has everything a music lover could want: romantic themes, battle music and just exceptional music. A great cd, one you will want to play over and over again."
A PERFECT COMBINATION

"It is quite dificult to find a score that matches so perfectly with the images on the film. But Doyle has done it. Since the first notes, that great, dark opening, the story is told not only by the words of Shakespeare or the images. Music is also a narrator.Tracks like Death of Bardolph, or the great Battle of Agincourt, express all the emotion, power and passion the play has.I consider this score as a real piece of classical music. And the direction by Simon Rattle is also perfect. The strings and choirs going together in a perfect blend.Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful."
