James Horner captured the essence of the Civil War in music flawlessly. He did this through the adaption of existing tunes, but also inventing a hybrid Americana/Patriotism style. Horner was fortunate to have a director that allowed him to try new concepts in film music, like cross-fading disparate cues for dramatic effect. The music in Glory is powerful and compelling. It set the stage for what was to come over the next 10 years. To study Glory, is to understand a dividing line in the composer’s career; where he came from, and where he was going. This book is handsomely bound and the music is expertly engraved. This is a score that will be cherished for years to come.
