It seemed fitting that Scottish composer, Patrick Doyle would score a Celtic film. Quest For Camelot has fast paced bagpipes, heavy percussion, and a main flute theme. Doyle even utilizes a deep male choir for a couple cues. The whole score is quite lengthy running at 81 minutes. The end credits cue runs at 9 minutes is unneeded since it is basically an instrumental version of 3 different pop songs. The finale song in the album, Love Theme Reprise (Click here to listen to it,) is the typical style of a 90's pop song, but the tune of the chorus is identical to the song; The Prayer. I don't understand why they couldn't come up with something more....original but all in all, I enjoyed the song. The whole score is unique, has a wide range of different cues, and is a great adventure score to listen to. If you are looking for a fun, Celtic ride, then check out Quest For Camelot.

    Celtic music like this is pretty much my favorite to listen to when I'm doing school or working books and whatnot. I really liked these! Thanks for sharing them. :)
