Audio Cassette
  • It'd been years since I'd seen or heard this movie. We used to have the movie on VHS and the soundtrack on vinyl, so you can imagine how much I've seen and heard it in this digital age.

    This 25 year anniversary CD is everything I hoped it would be. Given that it is a soundtrack to a short film, all the music here really only come to 25 minutes. The first half of the CD is the story narrated over the music (synchronized, of course) and the second half is the stand-alone score. Both times "Walking in the Air" appears on the CD, it is sung by the boy, Peter Auty.

    The music itself embodies the mystery of Christmas better than any other music I've heard. It's not very often music brings tears to my eyes, but this CD did it. You'll find the best music is from the second half of the film, especially dancing in the boy's playroom, riding the motorbike, "Walking in the Air", and the snowman dance.

    In short, this CD is a must in any Christmas music collection!

  • I can not imagine a soundtrack that encompasses the joy of wintertime and Christmas as perfectly as The Snowman. There are two copies of the soundtrack on the CD, one with a British narrator who does a very good job of it, though with just the right enthusiasm for little children to get excited while listening. The second part of the soundtrack is just the music with no narrator, both versions have the famous "walking in the air" with the original singer.

    To me this is a very sentimental soundtrack, whenever I listen to it (especially in the winter) I can feel the love my parents expressed to me while reading/watching the snowman. This is a perfect way to start a winter tradition with your children.

  • If you haven't watched this video or heard this soundtrack (but especially the video), you are missing a British Christmas classic that becomes an American's favorite once it is experienced. There is nothing else like it. It is and beautiful and not to be missed.

  • I wrote this last bit first before I heard the whole album which has both the narrated and soundtrack versions its a full package I will leave my less impressed wrong version below. I was wrong it is perfect.

    "I was looking to buy the soundtrack. What this is, is the soundtrack with a (granted very nice) narration over it. I was hoping for just the beautiful music to have on in the background, as I like to work without words. It is a quality production, just keep in mind it is the story being narrated rather than just the beautiful music. If that is what you want it is 5 stars."

  • The story and the music are a holiday classic. The music composed by Howard Blake is atmospheric and wonderful. The story is sad and wonderful
    at the same time.

  • I actually did not buy this today, but we've had the soundtrack, the movie and the book for many, many years. My grandchildren listen to parts of it at least 3 or 4 times a week in the car. There are two versions of the soundtrack included on the CD. One has a narrated version of the story spoken over the music. I love the book. I love the movie. I love the soundtrack. My kids know it by heart and now my grandchildren know it too. I highly recommend it. What a beautiful story, so simply told.

  • Got this as a gift for a fan of the movie. The music is absolutely beautiful. It certainly captures the essence and the magic of the movie.

  • Beautiful!
