Overview

More than any other Hollywood composer of distinction, Christopher Young has consistently suffered the misfortune of writing his finest scores for truly mediocre films, and with 2000s Bless the Child he's delivered his most ambitious and darkest effort to date, contrasting the beauty and majesty of liturgical music with the unsettling otherness of dissonant strings, eerie vocals, and deep, snarling brass. Young employs the human voice for sinisterly inhuman purposes, contrasting the youthful innocence of a boy soprano with the creeping malevolence of a sinister adult baritone -- as solo performances give way to choral elements, the score's force expands to critical mass, operating within a conventional classical context while simultaneously embracing avant-garde ideals. A masterpiece.
