    Excellent and very original subject for this compilation, Billie. Here are my favs:

    Black Beauty: Wonderful! This is a facet of Elfman we don't hear often. Most of the time he does epic, (super) heroic, action-filled scores. This cue reminds us that he can also compose Horner-like beautiful pastoral cues.

    Andre: It's a great discovery. I didn't know this score and this composer. Marvellous warm, heartfelt piece.

    Eight Below: Isham is mostly known for his jazzy / electronic music, but here he shows us he can also write for an orchestra, and pretty nicely.

    King Kong: what can I say? JNH shows us once again that he's among Hollywood's best composers with this very subtle and gracious piece.

    Moby Dick: this piece is masterfully composed and performed. As I don't know Christopher Gordon, I googled his name and found out that he has a very big oeuvre! Concert music, events music, arrangements... Please visit his site, it's impressive: [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    03 My Annies Gone, composed by Alan Silvestri, 'Father Of The Bride' -> sad, warm, gentle (1:18)
    04 Jane's Home, composed by Basil Poledouris, 'For Love Of The Game' -> fluent, gentle, graceful (04:52)

    Another great compilation. Sometimes a bit too sad and slow for me, but the music is excellent anyway.

    Cutthroat Island: Debney revisits the Golden Age Classics with this piece (and this whole score too). He does it with such a talent that it's almost too good.

    The Holiday: yes, you red this correctly, a Zimmer piece is among my favs! Seriously, this piece is ravishing, and the use of high strings at 1:42 is chilling.

    Kingdom of Heaven: the medieval and religious tone of this piece makes it very interesting. Good intimistic, emotional piece.

    Ladyhawke: although the presence of a modern beat is rather... surprising for such a medieval movie score, the music is very melodious and cheerful, so it's quite enjoyable presented out of context.

    Info to the Anime Watashi no Ashinaga Ojisan (Track 1 + 2)(Wikipedia)

    My Daddy Long Legs (私のあしながおじさん, Watashi No Ashinaga Ojisan) is a 1990 Japanese anime television series based on the novel Daddy-Long-Legs written by Jean Webster. The series was awarded the Excellent Movie Award for Television by the Japanese Agency of Cultural Affairs for Children in 1990.

    Webster's story had been adapted into anime previously by Tatsunoko Productions in 1979 to the TV special Ashinaga Ojisan, which was directed by Masakazu Higuchi. The aforementioned special was dubbed in English and released in the US and is otherwise unrelated to this television series.

    Premise

    Judy Abbott is an orphan who has been given the opportunity to study at the prestigious Lincoln Memorial high school by a mysterious benefactor whom she only knows as "John Smith". She has only seen his shadow once, and because of his long legs, she calls him "Daddy Long Legs". The only payment she is to give her benefactor is that she write him letters every month, with no expectation of them being responded to[1].

    The anime covers 3 years of Judy's life, starting with her leaving the John Grier Home orphanage, and ending with her finishing high school.

    Info to the Anime Haha wo Tazunete Sanzen Ri (Track 3 + 4) (Wikipedia)
    3000 Leagues in Search of Mother (母をたずねて三千里, Haha o Tazunete Sanzenri) is an anime series directed by Isao Takahata and aired in 1976. It is loosely based on a small part of the novel Heart (Cuore) by Edmondo De Amicis, i.e. the monthly tale (racconto mensile) From the Apennines to the Andes (Dagli Appennini alle Ande), widely expanded into a 52-episode epic.

    The series was broadcast on the World Masterpiece Theater, an animation staple that showcased each year an animated version of a different classical book or story, and was originally titled "From the Apennines to the Andes". Nippon Animation, producers of the World Masterpiece Theater, would adapt Cuore into a second TV anime series in 1981, although this second series was not part of the WMT.

    A summarization movie was released in the 1980s using edited footage from the TV run. Nippon Animation also re-animated 3000 Leagues as a feature-length film in 1999, with a theme song performed by Scottish pop superstar Sheena Easton ("Catch a Dream").

    The series was dubbed into several languages and became an instant success in some countries, such as Portugal, Brazil, Spain, Venezuela, Chile, the Arab world and Israel. In Hebrew, the series is called HaLev, meaning The Heart (the name of the novel which the series is based on). In some European and in Latin American countries the series is simply known as Marco, in Arabic the series was a huge success , it was called " Wada'an Marco ","وداعاً ماركو"," Goodbye Marco".

    Plot

    The plot of the series focuses on Marco, a young boy who lives with his family in the harbor city of Genoa, Italy during a depression period in 1881. Marco's father, Pietro Rossi, is a doctor that dedicates his time to treating poor patients, and therefore the family has financial difficulties. His beloved mother, Anna Rossi, goes to Argentina to work as a maid to earn money for Marco. When the letters from his mother stop coming after an indication that she is sick, Marco fears the worst for his mother's fate, and since his father is too busy working in his clinic and his older brother Tonio was sent off to train as a locomotive driver in Milano, he is the only one free enough to go search for her.

    Marco takes with him his older brother's pet monkey, Amedeo and together they sneak aboard the Andrea Dora, a ship bound for Brazil. In Brazil Marco boards an immigrant ship and finally arrives in Buenos Aires, where he meets a puppeteer called Peppino and his family, whom he knew from Genoa. They accompany him to Bahía Blanca in order to try and locate his mother.

    In Bahía Blanca he discovers his uncle stole the letters which his mother had sent him. He returns to Buenos Aires, and sails off on a ship to Rosario, there he tries to figure out how to get on a train to Córdoba. Marco's Italian friends collect enough money and buy him a train ticket. Marco arrives in Córdoba, and successfully manages to locate the agricultural engineer Mister Mequinez. He tells Marco that his mother works for his brother in Tucumán, and gives him enough money for a train ticket. But Marco ends up giving the money to a Doctor to save the life of a poor girl he meets. Marco sneaks on the train but he gets caught and tossed off the train in the middle of nowhere. A group of travelling gipsies rescue him and give him an old donkey.

    After a few days the donkey dies and Marco continues to walk to Tucumán by foot. He eventually arrives to his destination hungry and tired and finds his mother. His mother is very sick and needs an operation but she is too weak. As soon as she sees Marco she strengthens and she manage to pass to surgery successfully. At the end of the series Marco and his mother return to Genoa where the family is reunited.

The school's headmistress, Miss Minchin, takes advantage of this situation and makes her a maid in the school, trying hard to make her life as miserable as possible. However, Sarah, with the help of her friends, perseveres and tries to endure all her hardships until redemption comes at last.

    Billie, i listened a couple of times your compilation.
    You focused more at light and happy love themes, with most of the tracks based around piano and woodwinds, which creates that warm and familiar mood.
    I especially liked the Poledouris track, and "A Happy Ending" by Mark Knopfler.
    Overall a very nice compliation you made, perfectly adequate for those sunny afternoon walks on the park

    I see your bolt and raise you a Tale of Despereaux by William Ross (Heroic, Epic, Grand)

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    A little info on William Ross (Couldn't find any reviews of the soundtrack itself)
    A talented composer, conductor, orchestrator and arranger, William Ross began his career as an arranger in the pop and rock world, and over the years has worked with artists ranging from as Barbra Streisand, Johnny Mathis, Michael Jackson and Barry Manilow to Celine Dion, LeAnn Rimes, Jennifer Lopez, Whitney Houston and Cher. He first entered the film music world in the late 1980s, writing episodic scores for TV shows such as "McGyver", "Matlock", "Beauty and the Beast", and Steven Spielberg's "Tiny Toon Adventures", before moving into feature films primarily as an orchestrator for Alan Silvestri. Having made a name for himself working with Silvestri on successful films such as “The Bodyguard”, “Father of the Bride”, “Death Becomes Her”, Ross quickly became one of the most in-demand orchestrators in Hollywood, and subsequently worked on numerous high-profile films with composers ranging from Danny Elfman, Michael Kamen and Christopher Young to Bruce Broughton and David Newman. During this time, Ross undertook occasional scoring assignments on his own, achieving modest success with titles such as "Look Who's Talking Now" (1993), "The Little Rascals" (1994), "Tin Cup" (1996), "The Evening Star" (1996) and "My Dog Skip" (2000), but really came into his own in 2002 when he wrote the score for "Tuck Everlasting", and adapted and conducted John Williams's music for the second Harry Potter film, "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets". Now concentrating primarily on composing, he has since written the music for a number of successful films, notably “Ladder 49” (2004) and “The Game of Their Lives”, while continuing to collaborate with Alan Silvestri (they have now worked together on over 40 films!) Away from film music, Ross is also a prolific composer of music for theme parks, having completed assignments for Disneyland, Sony Entertainment in Germany, and Busch Gardens in Williamsburg, Virginia. He wrote a ballet, "Blue Suede Shoes", for a dance company in Cleveland, and has arranged music for many special events, including the Gala Inauguration of President Bill Clinton, the Superbowl telecast, and various awards ceremonies.

    Billie: Wow, so much music for us! Many thanks.

    Your Anime Pack is lovely. You seem to be a big fan of old cute animes. I really enjoyed some of them years ago, and I remember their charming, heartfelt music.

    Thank you too for BOLT, it seems very interesting because Disney + Powell = very likely a LOT of action and humor.



    Sanico: thank you for your Romantic Compilation. Don't worry about the fact that you chose only one track, because the important thing here is that you chose cues having a good Love Theme, or displaying a nice romantic ambience. I haven't still listened to your pack, but seeing some cues I know very well I can tell that you chose some really exemplary ones. Comments later as usual.

    Now that you and Billie posted your Romantic packs, I suppose I'll have to post my own soon...



    Sirusjr: another brand new score for us! Thanks a lot. I don't know this one, but as it seems to be in a medieval context, I'll probably like it because I'm fond of Medieval-Fantasy-Magical scores (Relly enjoyed Inkheart).

    William Ross is a very talented composer with great orchestral skills, but he's too much underrated, so it's good to see him scoring a recent big movie.

    Ps: if you have some time, please add some infos or a review to your post, thanks!



    Thank you all again, mates!

    MPC Batch encoder is a simple software that encodes and decodes from mpc files then you can compress separate.

    A very interesting interview:
    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]


    From moviemusicuk.us:

    "British-born composer who has spent the majority of his working career in Australia. Was a member of the Australian Boys Choir as a child, but received no formal music training; despite this, he began working in the film music industry in Australia in the mid 1980s, on small-scale TV movies of his own, and undertaking orchestration and conducting duties for other composers, notably Mario Millo and Roger Mason. First came to prominence internationally in 1998 with the “Moby Dick”, the first of several scores he wrote for the American cable channel Hallmark, and has since gone on to build a small but high quality filmography that includes titles such as “On the Beach” (2000) and the multi Oscar-winning “Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World” (2003). He also continued to provide support to other composers working in Australia, having conducted the score for “Moulin Rouge” (2001) on behalf of Craig Armstrong, and “Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course” (2002) for Mark McDuff. In addition to his film work, Gordon has also written music for the concert hall, arts festivals and special events that include the Sydney Harbour Millennium Celebrations, the Australian Centenary of Federation celebration and the recent Rugby World Cup."


    I just recently discovered this composer, thanks to Billie and her delightful [Hidden link. Register to see links.], where she posted one of his cues: Moby Dick Theme. This piece was so good that I wanted to hear a lot more from Christopher Gordon, and just at that moment Garcia27 had the good idea to generously bring us a bunch of scores and events music by him:

    - On The Beach
    - Moby Dick
    - Melbourne 2006 - The Opening Ceremony
    - Salem's Lot
    - Master and Commander
    - Christopher Gordon Unreleased Titles


    So, once again thanks a lot to Garcia27 for his great contributions. These posts are available higher in this page, [Hidden link. Register to see links.]. Enjoy this high level orchestral music!

    Thanks a lot for Year One From The North by Mishiru Oshima, Garcia. There are many fans of her here, she a fantastic composer who does some really sweeping beautiful orchestral scores. This post is highly appreciated (I didn't even know it existed).

    Yes, the app provided by Sirusjr (thanks!) is good for that. But as I said somewhere else, it's strongly advised not to convert a lossy format to another. But if you really need it in mp3, then you should use the highest quality possible for your conversion (Lame 3.98 insane), to avoid excessive quality loss.

    Foobar 2000 can play MPC files but if you want to put them on a portable media player (Ipod or Zune) then you need to convert them to mp3 thus why I understand your need to convert.

    For Winamp, you need the Winamp MPC Plugin:

    [Hidden link. Register to see links.]

    Just put it in your Winamp Plugins folder, then open Winamp, go to 'options' > 'preferences' > 'file types' and make sure MPC is selected. Now close Winamp and it'll be ok.


    Thanks for Alone In The Dark! Yes, it has been posted, but the mirror is welcome. Nice score for a game, but a bit heavy on choir sometimes (and the choir has a weird timbre).

    Can you please tell me what version and in what quality is your: The Dark Crystal?

    I recently red a review of it, and I'd like to rediscover this score, as it's been a very long time I heard it.
