Three Criteria of Film Scoring:

Melody and Motion Pictures:
“The story, not the score, is the star.”

“It’s actually the instrumentation that really shines here. That is where the sanctuary is found in this extremely well-produced and orchestrated CD.”

“Sanctuary is one of those introspective records that you put on in the middle of a dreary afternoon, or cheesy as it may sound when you just need a friend.”

“Certainly worth a listen. Especially if you’re tired of what pop radio plays ALL the time.”

“A tasty side trip but a bunch of serious players that wants to distance themselves from the commercial world without becoming too precious in the bargain.”
