Y/K Phantom soundtrack

This is the soundtrack to the Phantom written by Maury Yeston and Arthur Kopit. Charles Dance's television mini - series version of Phantom of the Opera is also based on this version of Phantom.

The orchestration is very enchanting as is the whole soundtrack. If Phantom were a storybook this would most definitely be the soundtrack. Glory Crampton's Christine is very strong in her vocals - she adds a very magical quality to Christine. Richard Write's Erik is very yearning and sad, he does a spectacular job portraying Erik's love for Christine through his vocals.

Best songs from this soundtrack IMHO are Music Lessons/Phantom Fugue and You are Music. This a must have for any phan looking to expand their CD collection.
