Music for the Pastor's Study: Part VIII. March of the Penguins

I know next to nothing about Alex Wurman, composer of this lovely soundtrack, but his use of black and white musical dyads and couplets is beautifully evocative of both the coloring and the odd gait of the stars of this equally gorgeous film, yet without ever devolving into mere cuteness. I can only think the composer must have drunk deeply from the well of Saint-Saens. Simply the most beautiful movie soundtrack I have heard in a very long time. Having played it over 100 times since I loaded it onto iTunes a couple of months ago, I have not tired of it yet.
