A great soundtrack but if you are looking for the closing song, Winter Light, performed by Linda Rondstadt, you will be disappointed to know that it is not on this CD. You will have to get her album Winter Light to find this song, or Chloe (from Celtic Women) has a wonderful version of the song on her debut album.

Sarah Brightman or Linda Ronstadt?

"The music is great. Enough other people have already said so, and I agree.However, several people are under the false impression that the version of "Winter Light" missing from this CD was recorded by Sarah Brightman. That's simply not the case. She recorded it for her "Classics" album, released in 2001 and she's NOT the person who sang the version you hear at the end of "The Secret Garden".Linda Ronstadt wrote the song (with Eric Kaz and Zbigniew Preisner), her recording of it was included with the credits at the end of "The Secret Garden", and can be found on her 1993 album, "Winter Light".Just thought y'all would like to know."
There's not much I can add...

"that the other reviewers haven't said, but I had to stick my oar in. I first saw this movie when I was 10 and have been in love with it ever since. The soundtrack was one of the things that really stuck in my mind. It was like mermaid music. Even at 10 I could appreciate the beauty and sonerous melodies. Everytime I hear it, chills tickle my spine and I get this twinge because I regret that I'm not in the garden with Mary, Colin and Dickon. The soundtrack incorporates a lot of violin solos and a lot of classical sounding music. I think there is really a bit of a Celtic flavoring in it too. Not that much, just a hint, kind of like a lemon slice in a glass of water. It really complements the movie through all its moods, you could even say it fits the book. There's not really anyway to sum it up except that this is enchanting, and soothing and it's just real GARDEN music. Buy it, you will be inspired."
