I own quite a lot of Horner's cd's, but in my opinion "Glory" is his best ever. This cd contains the most beautiful music Horner has ever written.
The cd opens with "A Call To Arms", which introduces one of the main themes. Track 3: "Lonely Christmas" introduces the other main theme. Both themes are very strong, mostly performed by strings. There is also a nice motif, mostly performed by solo-trumpet.
I think all the tracks are very good, actually. The best tracks are "A Call To Arms", "Brave Words, Braver Deeds" (which contains a very good french horn solo), "Preparations For Battle" (My favourite track. Contains all the themes), "Charging Fort Wagner", "An Epitaph To War" (The main theme performed by choir only: pure magic!) and "Closing Credits".
This cd proves how good Horner is at writing for strings and choir. And for people who hate it that Horner's music isn't always very original: This score is 100% original!!
If you like "Apollo 13" and "Legends Of The Fall", then "Glory" is something for you. An essential for filmmusic fans! Thank you again Mr. Horner for a wonderful score. Bravo!
