Jude Neanor: The Journey Collection

Sleeve notes: This collection of music culminates with the track ‘A Hero’s Welcome’, a piece which was designed to underscore the re-entry of Apollo 11 as it returned to Earth. It was inspired by the music for the film ‘Deep Impact’ by James Horner. I have used the piano motif rom the cue ‘The Wedding’ and repurposed it in oboe as the opening theme in this piece. I have also taken inspiration from the dissonant string ostinato in the cue ‘The Comet’s Sunrise,’ and used this in the second section.
