True Love

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.

1 John 4:9

Review of Poldark and Outlander Soundtracks

I'm not a huge music buff all right...I am SO not one of those people that feel that have to have music on all the time or something is missing. That's not me and never will be much to my husband's dismay as he is one of those people lol. However recently two soundtracks came out that I had to have and I wanted to share them with you.

First up is the Soundtrack to Poldark

The music on the soundtrack is composed by Anne Dudley and beautifully so. Both stirring and haunting at the same time her score has tons of emotional punch at every turn. There are 20 tracks in all and all are instrumental accept one which incidentally is my favorite - Medhel an Gwyns sung by the very multi-talented Eleanor Tomlinson who plays Demelza in the series. For those of you who have wondered about it YES that is her singing the songs in the series as Demelza! The woman can act and sing like a bird too! I do love the whole soundtrack but I was very disappointed that they didn't include Demelza's Song that she sang at Christmas and left everyone spellbound by (and rightly so) that one is glaringly missing from the soundtrack I have no idea why maybe there was some copyright issue but it was a big disappointment to me that it wasn't included on CD. Truthfully that is the only draw back to this wonderful soundtrack in my opinion. I have listened to it over and over truly is beautiful and I think it is a must have for any Poldark fan! I know I am very happy I bought it. 

Track List

1. The Crossroads
2. Medhel an Gwyns
3. The Longest Walk
4. The Bal Maidens
5. An Army Against One Man
6. Theme from Poldark
7. Love of My Life
8. The Blue Dress
10. Liberty or Tyranny
11. Daring to Hope
12. Working the Quillet
13. Truth and Consequence
14. Where the Land Meets the Sea
15. The Carnmore Copper Company
16. Becoming Porcelain
17. A Seam of Ironstone
18. A Blood Red Moon
19. Copper and Tin
 20. Luck of the Devil

(The ONLY reason I'm not giving this one a perfect 5 stars is because they did not include Demelza's song that was a big mistake in my opinion but the rest of the soundtrack is nothing short of wonderful!)

**It's only 10.99 for the CD or 9.99 for digital download (you can also purchase the songs individually from there if you prefer)**

Secondly but certainly not last or least is Volume 1 of the
Outlander Soundtrack

(I say first volume because they have recently released another soundtrack for the second half of the first season but I haven't had the extra money to get it yet. I hope to get it soon and will review it sometime after I do.)

There are 13 tracks at in call composed by the ubber talented Bear McCreary. The songs here span the entire emotional spectrum from happy, to romantic, to sad, and yes very dramatic overtures too. I really do love this soundtrack and have listened to it numerous times since I got it several months ago. I do love Celtic music and Bear McCreary has captured the essence and romance of both the Highlands and the story of Outlander with his moving and beautiful score. It's hard to pick a favorite on this one but I think it would have to be The Wedding that one just gets me every single time! I think it's masterfully done and truly I don't see how he could have improved upon this one it's just simply awesome. This one is a MUST for any Outlander fan for sure!
