Amazon has updated their website to indicate the score to Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince composed by Nicholas Hooper will be available for purchase on July 7th, 2009. With pre-orders currently available here in our Cauldron Shop, the CD is listed at $15.98 (USD), however no track listings are yet available, and we will of course update once those are released.

Reminder note as well: July 7th is the same day Scholastic will release the paperback edition of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows here in the US. Pre-orders for that are also available here.

Will undoubtedly buy it even tho Hooper isn’t my favorite composer. I hope John Williams (or Patrick Doyle) comes back for DH. I especially want his music when the elder wand fixes Harry’s wand at the end to reprise the music from SS when Harry first got his wand, that was cool.

I can’t wait to see the track list – I can’t wait even more to hear the music!!

Ditto – I am also looking forward to the tracklist and hearing this music! I’m a sucker for soundtracks.

And I don’t think we’ve had any announcement as to who will be scoring Deathly Hallows. Apparently there are rumors that Williams said he was confident he would be back, but nothing official. My guess is that Yates would keep Hooper if it’s up to him, but it’s hard to refuse Williams if he wants the job. I would think the producers could override Yates, but I’m not sure how that works. I do hope Williams comes back, though, and brings it full circle! :-) He would do such justice to the walk into the forest and the Epilogue…. I get chills thinking about it.

Now I am even more excited. I cannot wait to hear this soundtrack

Although I do have to say that I am looking more forward to the Deathly Hallows soundtrack just because it is including the origanal composer.

I also hope that John Williams will be composing the soundtrack for DH! *crosses fingers

And maybe I’ll buy this soundtrack since it is coming out on the day paperback DH comes out! :D

I love listening to the soundtracks, they always have a way of not only helping the plot, but are great to listen to whenever! I loved the HBP game soundtrack so I can’t wait for more music!!!

Well, from the looks of the last trailer, the music should be amazing!!

On a completely unrelated topic, Leaky…what’s with the new green look? Did Draco Malfoy take over? No offense, but the brown look was so much better.
