A beautiful album!
James Horner's ''Titanic'' soundtrack is a masterpiece like the film! To me it's more than a film score, it's a tribute to the real ship and its final voyage. ''Back to Titanic'' is no exception, it's a masterpiece in itself, and features the most beautiful rendition of the Titanic theme ( Titanic suite ) featuring the Kings college choir. It makes me cry everytime. Also included is the Irish music from the third class dance, ''The Portrait'', ''Nearer my god to thee'' ( Film version and standard version ), ''My heart will go on'' with dialogue from the film, ''Come Josephine in my flying machine'' by Marie Brennan, the missing sinking segment by James Horner not included on the original CD, etc. This is a must buy and my personal favourite of the 2 volumes!
Back To Titanic (CD) + fold out poster
The poster is a nice reminder of the film; I expected the CD to be just the film'smusic - however it was much more,even including some of the dialogue used. It said on the cover of the CD that the music was 'haunting' - the description was very accurate and worth hearing more than once.
I love and am interested in anything to do with Titanic and after seeing the latest film, liked the music played during the film. I just love music of all kinds and thought it would be lovely to have this CD to play in the car.
