The three have aimed at music that evokes the period and gotten it played by the Berlin Philharmonic under the baton of Sir Simon Rattle, along with the State Choir Latvia and various soloists.

The result is a moody musical soundscape for the most part, presenting a becalmed but threatening ambience that occasionally breaks out into, as a cue title referring to the main character puts it, "Grasse in Panic." Strings sustain, and soprano voices waft into the rafters as a sense of foreboding goes on and on. Clearly, this is music for a gothic tale of suspense and horror.
