The Man In The Iron Mask Movie Suite

Man In The Iron Mask Movie Suite
Music by Nick Glennie-Smith

This 1998 movie suite seems to cover the really important parts of a modern composition. With background male choral voices blending with the synthesizer, the other instruments are minimal until the final minutes when the orchestra sounds as if it belongs at a Royal event. Under the tutelage of Hans Zimmer, Mr. Glennie-Smith has certainly joined the ranks of the current synth-composers with this thrilling suite. With a timing of 22:47 this is one of those that you'll enjoy more and more each time you listen.  -MJ
