    Searching For Music From Existing Programs

    Me again, with another skating music request.

    I'm trying to find the individual tracks used in these programs.

    1) Elvis Stojko - The Mummy - 1999-2000 LP
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TbCjKpvY8l0

    (I just need the last minute or so - I found the rest of it)

    2) Elvis Stojko - Merlin - 1998-1999 LP
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pvOPisSQreI

    I need the first few seconds - the vocal part - and then the last half.

    3) Tara Lipinski - Sense & Sensibility/Much Ado About Nothing - 1996-1997 LP
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rBrMZxhjWVY

    4) Paul Wylie - Henry V - 1991-1992 LP
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nLhA7CVIok

    Does anyone know which individual songs these skaters used? I've found most of the other routines I wanted, but these programs seem to elude me.

    Thanks so much in advance.

    Wylie's FS ends with the last minute of Symphony No. 3 in C minor, Op. 78 by Camille Saint-Saëns, also known as the "Organ Symphony." I believe the rest of his long program uses tracks from the Henry V film soundtrack by Patrick Doyle. ETA one of the tracks: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L3crpwGzXYw

    Patrick Doyle's two film soundtracks are used in Lipinski's FS - first part is from Much Ado About Nothing, including the famous "Overture": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJKPLjjE91k ;
    5:15-7:30 is from Sense and Sensibility, beginning with "Willoughby": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W061OPR0zNI; last part is back to the Overture of MAAN.

    I didn't realize that Doyle also wrote the music that Tara used. Thanks, Sylvia. I love his soundtrack to Henry V, and I'm always excited when I watch that Wylie program and we reach the Saint-Saens. That pairing has to be one of the all-time great music mixes in skating history. I wonder if Wylie still dreams about skating to that.

    I'll have to check into the other two sound Doyle tracks you link to.

    I have both of those soundtracks, Olympia - Much Ado About Nothing, Sense & Sensibility - lovely in both cases! Another deligthful soundtrack that Tara used was from Little Women (a relatively short soundtrack - coming in @ under 45 minutes, maybe even under 40 minutes).

    Oh, yes, Little Women was lovely, and entirely suitable for Tara at that age. Wasn't it a Thomas Newman score? Very moving, and one of the things that made that version of Little Women able to hold its own among the three major film versions. (I can't choose a favorite version because each of the others also had something unbeatable; the 1930s version had Katharine Hepburn as Jo, and the 1940s MGM version had the incomparable Margaret O'Brien as Beth. To get her, they cheated and made Beth the youngest sister, so Elizabeth Taylor could play Amy both as a girl and as a young woman. Clever planning, if you ask me. O'Brien was simply stunning. A fourteen-year-old tragedienne. I sobbed through half her performance. In fact, June Allyson wrote somewhere that after filming the day of Beth's final scene, she had to pull over in the car on the way home and cry, because she couldn't keep driving safely.)

    I'll hunt up the other Doyle scores on YT.

    I have only seen the most recent version of Little Women with Wynona Ryder, so I'll have to check out the other versions as well.
