Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with ‘Brooklyn’, Best Picture Academy Award Nominated Film Starring Saoirse Ronan

For St. Patrick’s Day, celebrate Irish American culture and heritage with the Academy Award® Best Picture Nominee, Brooklyn, starring Saoirse Ronan!  The soundtrack features the acclaimed score by Michael Brook, Canadian Grammy®– and Golden Globe®-nominated composer, plus hear some traditional Irish music and some classic ’50s American tunes on the Various Artists album.  Watch our Brooklyn Playlist below and get a taste of a great Irish American story.

But aside from its lead and thoughtful direction, the movie’s ace-in-the-hole might be its lovely, plaintive music by composer Michael Brook – Rodrigo Perez, Indiewire

Fully lyrical with tasteful Irish-appropriate inflections, the score starts as it means to go on with the tender “Opening Titles”: a violin (performed by Brook’s wife) immediately establishes the Irish connection, accompanied by a wash of strings, a gentle piano melody, clarinet and mandolin. It conveys the essence of Eilis’ journey in a nutshell.  – mfiles

“Of course, what one considers the music of Jerusalem to be is a personal matter, but I feel it mostly in ‘The Western Wall’ and at the beginning of ‘The Second Temple’… Jerusalem is a nice score to listen to from start to end.” –Soundtrack Geek

‘Journey To Mecca’ Score By Grammy Nominee Michael Brook Is Out Now, IMAX Film Now On DVD!


I think my favorite cue from this album is “The offer”. Something about the minimalistic yet poignant way it sounds make me want to listen to it over and over again. This is just the tip of a score as beautiful as a sunset in the desert. The documentary is about a pilgrimage and the music is as thoughtful and meaningful as that journey 700 years ago. I loved this score. – Soundtrack Dreams
