Christopher Young

Swedish director Lasse Halström’s 2001 adaptation of E. Annie Proulx’s Pulitzer-winning 1993 novel stars Kevin Spacey as a New York newspaperman and single father who relocates his two young daughters to their ancestral home in Newfoundland – rebuilding their shattered lives while also unveiling dark family secrets. The all-star cast features Cate Blanchett, Julianne Moore, Pete Postelthwaite, Scott Glenn and Judi Dench.
The enormously prolific Christopher Young – typically known more as a genre composer (
Hellraiser, Spider-Man 3)– flexes his diversity here, returning to the hymnal resonance of his earlier work like Murder in the First with a powerful yet gently effusive collection of cues that embrace the rich historical and cultural tapestry of Newfoundland. The soaring title track with its dense orchestration, jubilant strings and Gaelic-inflected woodwinds and percussion sets the tone for more subdued tracks like “The Gammy Bird,” “Dutsi Jig,” “Mooncussers” and “Sail On” – a collective musical embrace of a rare, remote place where time truly stands still and passions run as deep as the sea.
