Review: I bought this CD over a year ago, and immediately fell in love with it. I've been buying soundtracks since the early 1960s and for 3 years in the late 1980s reviewed them for a national magazine. But I'm mainly just a fan of instrumental soundtracks, and this is one of the best. (There IS a very interesting and beautiful vocal arrangement of the main theme, plus another cue with a haunting vocalise of the same theme, plus 2 forgettable vocals that I don't remember hearing when watching my Blu-rays of all 3 seasons and which I skipped when I downloaded this to iTunes for my iPod.) Interestingly, the music sometimes seemed to almost disappear when one was watching the program, so it's nice to be able to hear the music front and center as it is here and the soundtrack is a thrilling achievement, and I'm not exaggerating when I say that it is one of the finest soundtracks I have ever bought! Interestingly, I purchased the follow-up ("DOWNTON ABBEY: The Essential Collection") and must admit that it adds very little "essential" material to what we get in this amazing soundtrack. If you love beautiful film soundtracks, you won't go wrong with this one!
