    I was pleasantly surprised at a certain peaceful serene beauty of the thing. I would have expected something with the pulse-racing pace of the music of the trailer. But this works and suggests that there will be more than one mood in the film.

    It’s the latter part of the evening as I type this, and it fits end of day, when the work is done and one relaxes and reflects.

    It’s not the Concerto of Deliverance, but there’s a, I don’t know what to call it, calm joyfulness about it. And I don’t recall when or if I’ve heard something exactly like it.

    I’m not good with words to describe music, but the elegant simplicity of it also works. I think I will go back now, and listen to it again…

      I like it very much too. In terms of its mood and overall feel, it reminds me a good deal of “Prayer of Saint Gregory” by Hovhaness, which is one of my favorite pieces of classical music. I particularly like the performances on this CD: http://amzn.to/i1t4eB

      None of the other tracks on that CD especially resonated with me, but I’ve probably listened to that single track over 30 times, over the years. In grad school I would lay on the floor in my apartment in the evenings, sometimes, and just let the sound wash over me. It’s an audiophile-quality recording, as well, so I sometimes use it for testing out new speakers and stereo systems.
