Medieval at its best!
Mario G. Perez Fonseca | Guitarland | 04/03/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Close your eyes and imagine a world of fantasy, honour and valor: The world of King Arthur, Merlin and the Knights of the round table. Play this Cd in the background and you're there! Truly magical score for an equally great tv series. Comprised of the best music for a TV Miniseries, this cd will allow you to recreate the magic and myth of Merlin. Melodic catchy tunes inspired by upper England traditional music, the songs in Merlin really capture the essence and soul of an era and faithfully recreate a time I wish we were living :)"
"Spellbinding..."

"This is not only the best score for a film i have ever heard, it is some of my all-time favourite music. The pieces are incredibly well written, and manage to be extremely dramatic, thrilling, and passionate all at once. Not only does the music express different emotions during its course, like Wonder, joy, exhilaration, hope, sadness, and despair, it completely evokes them from the listener. Having been brought in the 80s and 90s, i never really acquired a like for classical music, though i never disliked it, but this CD is among those i listen to most, even among new-age pop, hip-op, and others. BUY THIS CD, it is captivating, and you will never want to stop listening to it. it is completely SOULFUL!! Anyone with any taste in music will love this CD, so buy it now!!! you will not regret it the slightest amount!!"

"Note: my actual rating is 4.5 starsWhen I listened to the "Merlin" soundtrack for the first time in a Borders, I decided not to buy it. Once I got home, I realized what a mistake I had made. This album is great, and evokes the perfect fantasy/myth/epic mood for the movie. There are enough repetitions of recognizable themes to tie the tracks together, but there is also plenty of variation. A favorite of mine is track 3, "The Walls are Whispering." Within this one track are about four themes, including a spirited battle theme (which, to this day, gives me goosebumps)and a medieval dance. Track 7, "May Angels Fly Thee Home" is a beautiful, sad piece. I hear traces of Jones' work in the movie "The Dark Crystal" (esp. in track 6) reincarnated in this soundtrack (if anyone knows where I can get that soundtrack, please let me know). Parts of this soundtrack also show a distant resemblence to the "Berceuse" from Stravinsky's "Firebird." This soundtrack truly is magical."
