I’m so pleased this was nominated!!! Lily’s theme is the most haunting and beautiful piece of music I’ve heard!! It set the scene for the entire film! Amazing!

The soundtrack was amazing! I love how when Voldy’s been defeated you hear a sample of Lily’s theme and it just fits. Its like Harry finally avenged his mother. The opening scene was amazing and a lot of it was helped by the soundtrack. Part One’s opening scene was made spectacular by the music and I wondered how if they could top it and they did!
