This Surround Sound SACD edition of the Original Movie Soundtrack of Phantom of the Opera was one of three movie music SACDs that was released around Christmas a few years aback and seems to have gotten lost in the shuffle. (Helps to explain why most music labels scale back or skip late December releases altogether!)
It features a full orchestra, two choirs and the singers from the movie performing many favorites from Phantom of the Opera. The vocals are in Center Front to provide focus while all of the front and surround channels are used for the orchestra. This is especially effective when the music comes to thundering crescendos at the end of the show stopper selections.
