Album Notes
It may come as a surprise to see that not only is Mari Iijima a pop sensation, but is also a genius with composing classical scores and movie soundtracks! Lorna Doone is Mari Iijima's sensational soundtrack for a 1922 silent film remade and remastered in 2001. Many people are not big fans of classical music at all, but Lorna Doone has a very special touch to it. The score was composed entirely for a string quartet, and with the talent of four string players and Mari on piano, this album delivers such a hard punch that you won't believe its magnitude. It is quite frankly one of the most beautiful scores I have ever heard, and it probably will stay that way. Even included is the bonus track "Looking for a Shadow", which was featured in the short film "White Shadow", which has Mari singing her heart out. So to all of you who don't think highly of classical music, or even all of you that do, this score will give you enough peace to end your deepest frustrations.

Note From Mari
Although this album isn't 100% flawless :)
(the whole thing was recorded live in one day.),
there are a few exceptional tunes on this album.
If you're interested in a classical side of me,
go ahead and check this album out.
When you get a chance to see the actual film,
I bet the music makes sense to you.

I enjoyed the music and thought it went well with the movie.
This instrumental CD was quite enjoyable and went along great with the movie of Lorna Doone. We used the CD as background music for a presentation my daughter did for a British Literature class.


brings in tranquility
It is different from one of Mari's earlier albums "Starlight, Moonshadow". Yet, you will like it even if you are not a big fan of classical music. Although this album is full of pure music, you could still hear Mari's beautiful voice from the short bonus song "Looking For A Shadow".

Wonderful, Amazing it was done in one day.
Beautiful, hypnotic and infuses you with the story. Listening to the cd brought me back nearly scene by scene of the story. It Amazes me this work was done in one day.


Mari Iijima surprises with minimalist score
I thought she was simply a Japanese pop star, but I had Turner Classic Movies' Silent Sunday on the television in another room, when I heard this haunting score. At first I thought it was either a Philip Glass or a Steve Reich score played by the Kronos Quartet, when I looked it up online and it turns out to be this Japanese waif who recorded it in one informal! Great Sunday morning music, a bit melancholy, but thoroughly engaging.
And guess what? Amazon didn't even carry it, but CDBaby had it new at an excellent price!


You don't need words in this film, the music itself enhances it and carries the
The film is, for the most part, quite heartbreaking, and the music carries all of the emotion in this film beautifully and enhances the plot further. If you are not a fan of classical music you should see the movie, and the music will fit- that makes this CD well-worth buying.
