Review

Magical. Mystical. This is a charming score for a charming film. Full of magic and wonder. There are possibly a hundred and one different places you could use this music: in a glen, a forest untouched by man, in the presence of brownies. Whenever you want to put across the feeling of otherworldliness, this is the score. When you want to highlight a magical moment, this is the score. Best used either as background music for a magical adventure, or for a specific event as suggested above. Definitely a fantasy score.
