It's Soundtrack Sunday again! The day where I post awesome music to write to or just listen to for pleasure if you're a fellow soundtrack junkie. This is another old favorite of mine. The Shrek movies are notorious for using a lot of modern music, yet they still use a score composed by Harry Gregson-Williams. The score has been decent to me until in Shrek Forever After I heard this piece and it is absolutely gorgeous.
It starts with a melancholy piano version of the main theme for Shrek with light horns. Some more gentle instruments join in and then the instruments build into a crescendo that gives you chills, and the piece ends on a very intense note. This is a beautiful, heart-wrenching piece that's great for an emotional fantasy climax. It is a really unexpected gem. You can listen to more epic music in my Soundtrack Sundays YouTube playlist.
Have you heard this piece before? What do you think of it? Have you see Shrek Forever After?
