Conrad Pope, film composer and orchestrator, has updated his Facebook with comments on the "Deathly Hallows: Part 1" soundtrack:

Just finished the first week with the LSO of recording Alexandre Desplat’s score to “HP7”. Harry Potter now occupies a new musical universe. For Lovegood AD has written a charming, “groovin’” theme. Dobby, too, is given a new “voice”. The emotional music reaches its climax in Ron’s speech in the “wilderness” where the poetry of AD conveys the emotion in a single chord’s voicing. Stay tuned.

The soundtrack will be released on November 16th. Thanks very much to UniversHarryPotter for the tip!

That sounds great! I mean over the years the sound of Harry Potter has been getting better and better. In the Order of the Phoenix the hairs on my back rose when I heard “Harry’s Wondrous World” on the flute. And in the Half-Blood Prince, I burst in sobs when hearing the background music on Dumbledore’s death.
In the Deathly Hallows, I know for sure the music will get better and better.

This guy makes me nervous and scared as hale! He did the score for New Moon and while the music was beautiful on its own it just didn’t fit the movie at all! He refused to even listen to the previous score from the original Twilight movie which certainly explains the disconnect, but I just desperately hope that he didn’t take that same stance with DH and refuse to listen to any of the previous HP scores because simply making up whatever music you want just doesn’t work with an HP score especially not for part of DH!

Awesome! (I couldn’t really understand half of that but it sounds great)! I always love the HP soundtracks and am playing the music from the Goblet of Fire on my violin and I love the way it sounds!

I hope the music is as beautiful as some of the themes for HBP.

This waiting and reading about the next film is very emotional. There is so much in these stories that speaks to the good and bad, the downs and ups, of life. Every time I pickup one of the books – and I’ve done that a lot in the run up to DH part 1 – I feel like I am right back in it, back in the world. It is lovely and sad and too wonderful all at once.

I love Alexandre Desplat! He did the score for New Moon and it really was lovely, for a Twilight film. So I’m definitely buying this one!

I have really enjoyed the music throughout the movies. I hope that Dobby’s new voice will express his courage.

Guess That Book

History of Magic was by common consent the most boring subject ever devised by Wizard-kind. Professor Binns, their ghost teacher, had a wheezy, droning voice that was almost guaranteed to cause severe drowsiness within ten minutes, five in warm weather.
