Decca Records is proud to announce the release of Downton Abbey The Essential Collection, containing the original music from the multi-award winning television series produced by Carnival Films for ITV.
Renowned British composer John Lunn is the man behind the magic. His original music conjures up the perfect atmosphere for the happenings of the aristocratic Crawley family and their servants as their lives unfold at Downton Abbey. With his gift for delicate orchestration, Lunn possesses a wonderfully unique voice that commands the full range of musical style.
The Essential Collection features an irresistible vocal recording of new track: I'll Count The Days which is sung by Rebecca Ferguson with lyrics written especially for her by renowned lyricist, Don Black. This track is the backdrop to the love story between leading characters Matthew and Mary. As well as the original orchestral version of the Downton theme tune, the Essential Collection includes an evocative recording from the Scala & Kolacny Brothers. Their covers of Every Breath You Take and With Or Without You were used in the official promotional ITV trailers for series one and two respectively.
The majestic Downton Abbey atmosphere has a powerful magic which, with Deccas Downton Abbey The Essential Collection, can be recreated time and time again.
