    Hans zimmer is terrific, I’m getting this when it hits shelves

      For just one track?

      Unless you’re also a big Rupert Gregson-Williams’ fan, I think it is better to just listen to Zimmer’s cue on Spotify, YouTube, or whatever.

  2. Ann says:

    What is the name of the piece of music during the wedding scene when Churchill arrives?

    • sarah says:

      Holsts Jupiter (choral)

      • Ann says:

        Thank you so much Sarah. It was familiar but I could not find it in the credits or on the Soundtrack info. : )

      • Dan says:

        It’s actually a true hymn tune, “Thaxted,” which I think Holst had harmonized before using it in the “Planets.”

  3. wendy says:

    Please tell me the name of the other (in addition to the wedding) choral pieces in this program. They are so beautiful, and I can’t find them listed in the credits or the sound track.

  4. Kate says:

    Does anyone know if score over the ending scene of the dinner honoring Churchill (after Elizabeth gives her speech and Philip apologizes) in episode 1.09 is in this album? Going by the titles, it feels like the score concludes at episode 1.08.

  5. The main title has a Zadok the priest feel in its build up… anyone else agree?
    Btw, I love it!!

  6. Hayes Travis says:

    Episode 9, Assassins. Does anyone know the musical score played where the artist Graham Sutherland has had his final meeting with Churchill and a baritone is singing this rather dark, broody piece with very dramatic strings?

  7. Copernicus says:

    Anyone know when this will be available in Canadian iTunes or amazon stores? The show is on Canadian Netflix, but we can’t seem to buy the music. Thanks.
