John Debney is an incredible composer. His work on the score to Mel Gibson’s Passion of the Christ is simply awe inspiring. The disk is fast approaching three years of age, but is once again in high circulation, at least in my iPod and study. Most of my recent reading and writing, in fact, has been accompanied by the Debney Soundtrack. It is spinning and playing, at this very moment, in a compact stereo comfortably smashed between two rows of books loosely stored upon my favorite raw, unstained, wooden shelves. It is a wonderful sound filling the once empty background space of my study.
