"This soundtrack, while not from the best movie ever made, could just as well be a contender for that category. Combining Native American rhythms with naturistic compositions and soft, mellow themes, The Scarlet Letter soundtrack, composed by John Barry, is a breathtaking mix of beauty. Native American influences can be heard in numerous tracks throughout, most significantly in the beginning song and the dark themes related to Roger Chillingworth. Nature's beauty can be felt in track three, entitled "The Bird-The Swimmer," as the composer uses percussion instruments, strings, and a boy's choir to bring the forest to life. The more suspenseful music, evident in tracks nineteen and twenty-one, use forceful drums, horns and strings to accompany the ending scenes. Although the movie has been hailed as a total disaster, it is a far cry from that of its soundtrack, which is nothing short of amazing."

"John Barry hits a jackpot yet again with this beautiful score that stirs you right to the heart. The film was so-so, but it's worth watching if only to see how Barry performs his magic with a perfect marriage of music/film. I am somewhat partial to Barry, but I'm serious.... this is one of his very finest."

""The Scarlet Letter" is a good film,but the soundtrack is much better.I find it hard to believe that it was not nominated for best score by the Academy.The best themes are:"main title",hester rides to town",love scene","agnus dei" and "i am the father of her child". Thank you so much John Barry,i am a very big fan of you,and "the scarlet letter" is a classic.It is almost as good as "out of africa"."
