Hilary And Jackie - Music From The Motion Picture
The other music on this disc is simple, yet poignant. Pheloung features the cello in his compositions, and Caroline Dale does an excellent job of being Jackie in her cello playing. Pheloung includes an arrangement of a song which the du Pré sisters sang as children, showing that he is not only a good composer, but is in touch with the material and emotion behind the film. The score is never excessive, and though sentimental at times, it seems appropriate to the tragic nature of this story.
