Something Wicked This Way Comes Movie Suite

Something Wicked this Way Comes Suite
Music by James Horner

The month of October 2011 ends in the scariest of all the holidays, All Hollows Eve, otherwise referred to as Halloween, so we will have some movie suites that represent some of the better of the motion picture scores that scare the bejeezes out of us.  To that end, we have a rare work from 1983 by Mr. Horner that will cause you to stop and wonder as you listen. Much of the score had screeching choral voices which totally detracted from the orchestra. Most of that is now gone and we are left with an orchestral composition that has some choral high points in a suite that holds its own quite well. No, this is not Star Trek nor is it Avatar, but it is filled with a building tension that will grip you. With a timing of 22:24 I hope you enjoy this.  -MJ
