Review

Most people will remember the score for Watership Down because of that wonderful song by Mike Batt (but sung by Art Garfunkel). The score itself is quite serviceable, though a little on the short song. There is quite a range of moods and textures represented on the CD, though the overall tone of the album is soft and quiet.
