Today, I present to you one of my favorite songs from the third soundtrack I ever bought. (The volume on the video is a bit low, so you may need to turn your sound up.)
"In the Beginning" from The Bible
Composed by Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe
If you didn't know, The Bible was a TV series that aired a while back. You may recall the controversy of the devil supposedly looking like Obama. Anyway, the directors were able to get not only Hans Zimmer to score the music, which alone is impressive enough, but also Lorne Balfe. Balfe has worked with Zimmer on numerous projects and is a fantastic composer himself. I'll eventually feature some of his stuff on my blog, because he deserves the attention.
I picked this album up at a local bookstore, and at the time, it wasn't quite my style. I had loved The Dark Knight Rises and Man of Steel, but this soundtrack had a different flavor to it. However, I instantly fell in love with "In the Beginning." There's something that's just quite beautiful and actually reverent about it. I mean, close your eyes and imagine the world being created by God with this music playing. You'll see what I mean pretty quickly.
You may recall that I enjoy making playlists for my stories. Well, back when there was the Five Enchanted Roses contest, I used this track as the love theme for my two main characters, Bella and Byron--Beauty and the Beast, respectively (and obviously, I imagine). I used it for one of the most poignant scenes between them, so that's another reason for why the song has a special place in my musical heart. I also used it for the end scene of my Five Magic Spindles entry.
Don't really have anything more to add. I hope you guys enjoyed the track as much as I do. Have a good rest of your Monday . . . or whatever day you're reading this!
So what did you think of the music? Did you find it awe-inspiring? Have you seen the TV series? If you have, was it any good?
