Harry in Winter

Free audio download on SoundCloud.

While I haven’t seen many of the Harry Potter films — the music is fantastic. Harry in Winter is so thematical, that it resonates with me, even though I haven’t seen the Goblet of Fire. Written by composer Patrick Doyle, Harry in Winter is a glorious melody that (I’m convinced) will be recognized as a modern classic at some point.
