"I found this at a 2nd hand store a long time ago and feel lucky that I ran across it! It's a compilation of songs from various Merchant Ivory movies over the years. It's a 2 disc set. Disc 1 has music from their "Western"movies, like "A room with a view" and "The Bostonians". I've mostly listened to disc 2, which has music from their earlier Indian themed movies, mostly unknown in the US. The music in that disc is beautiful, haunting and very evocative of India. It's been composed by various great composers including famed director Satyajit Ray, Sarod maestro Ali Akbar Khan and tabla king Zakir Hussain. I highly recommend it!"
