Playing tracks by

Hank Williams.

Desplat composed much of the score himself but relied heavily on Britten for inspiration with many Britten tracks taken from recordings conducted or supervised by the composer himself, the music includes The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra (Introduction/Theme; Fugue), conducted by Leonard Bernstein; Friday Afternoons ('Cuckoo'; 'Old Abram Brown'); Simple Symphony ("Playful Pizzicato"); Noye's Fludde (various excerpts, including the processions of animals into and out of the ark, and "The spacious firmament on high"); and A Midsummer Night's Dream ("On the ground, sleep sound"). It works very well and this musical score underlines the exquisitely understated simplicity of the film.
