Muze PNote Arguably his most ambitious and fully realized work, John Barry's original score to THE LION IN WINTER builds on the instrumental textures and dynamic tensions that characterize his earlier work (the James Bond films and BORN FREE, most notably), but goes beyond them to open a whole new chapter in the composer's evolution. Barry's music seems era-appropriate, yet contemporary, rooted in the dark, Gothic atmosphere of the Middle Ages, and drawing on the period majesty and influence of the Catholic church, the regal air of the period (the film takes place in 12th Century France during the reign of Henry II), and the turbulent emotions of the main character.
Muze PNote Employing a full chorus, Barry uses pentatonic Gregorian chants and Latin texts to ground the music historically, yet counterbalances these with modern-sounding chromatic scales, and passages that combine woodwinds, strings, brass, and percussion. Barry also uses the chorus for scene-specific drama, conjuring beautiful floating harmonies that echo events or emotions. A work of great complexity that supports the film perfectly, yet holds its own as an independent piece of music, A LION IN WINTER may be Barry's finest hour, and it won the Academy Award for Best Original Musical Score.
