It's a fine score (as is to be expected from John Williams), although parts of it are reminiscent of his scores from Hook and JFK. The Chieftains are featured on three tracks, and the album includes Enya's "Book of Days." One thing is puzzling, however. Why, when "Book of Days" is in Gaelic on Enya's Shepherd Moons album, is it translated into English for a movie about people from Ireland?
