This just in at Varese:

Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

Music Composed by
Nigel Clarke and Michael Csányi-Wills

Eleven-year-old Will Brennan (Perry Eggelton) is the world’s biggest Liverpool football fan. At his boys’ school in southern England, Will’s love and knowledge of the sport is all that sustains him. Then out of nowhere appears Will’s absentee father, Gareth (Damian Lewis), and with two tickets to the biggest match of the year: the Champions League Final in Istanbul.

But before the two can begin their journey, Gareth dies suddenly. Determined to make the trip and honour his father’s dream, Will runs away. En route, he encounters Alek (Kristian Kiehling), a former Yugoslavian football star who abandoned the game during his country’s civil war. Despite his initial reluctance to help, Alek finds himself inspired by Will’s heroic journey and helps him fulfill his dream.

Based on the historic “Miracle of Istanbul,” starring Bob Hoskins (Who Framed Roger Rabbit?), Damian Lewis (Your Highness), and Perry Eggleton, Will is a heartfelt family adventure about the lengths people will go for the love of the game.

The beautiful original score was composed by Nigel Clarke and Michael Csányi-Wills and lushly recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra and Choir in Abbey Road’s famous Studio One.

Will opens in the U.K. on November 4.

Just been told about this release (and film) by a mate.
I never thought I'd see the day a Varese CD release would feature track titles like that and Kenny Dalglish, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher ON THE COVER!!!
I've never heard of the two composers, but I guess I'm gonna have to buy this one without a doubt.
I wonder how the film will play in Manchester wink

I've only heard The Rocket Post, which was a pleasant affair, kind of romantic Horner-lite. Certainly willing to give more of their music a try.

They've also both composed individually; I'm curious to hear some of Clarke's concert pieces.

Well, I saw and really enjoyed this film last weekend (what a surprise!!) and the score was very, very good.
The film plays more like a modern-day fairy-tale, with the Liverpool Cup Final acting as the reality-based aspect.
It reminded me of films like Matilda and War Of The Buttons in the way it was realised.
It's very old-school and the score is a throw-back to days of old. VERY orchestral, without any of those damned modern grooves and percussions in earshot!! smile
Overall a damned enjoyable film and score, unless you're a Man U or Everton fan (probably Chelsea too).

I've just remembered, there's a cool little hommage to Elmer's GREAT ESCAPE score for the planning and execution of the lad's escape from his boarding school.

Glad you liked it... Both Nigel Clarke and Michael Csányi-Wills are definitely worth checking out... I am still waiting for my CD to arrive but hopefully it will be here on Friday or early next week...

I just got this.

What a great score -- lush and romantic with some great choral writing. For all of those who lament the loss of this kind of traditional orchestral style these days, this is the score to throw in their faces! smile
