Of the ten, seven were great classics, by which the author mean works that contain some of the most effective and affecting dramatic music ever written, Christoph Willibald Gluck's "Orpheus and Eurydice," Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's "Marriage of Figaro," "Don Juan," "Magic Flute," Ludwig van Beethoven's "Fidelio," and others.

Having said that, the music is "cinematic" in the true sense of the word and therefore achieves its primary purpose.
The best music is reserved for Choosing Life and The Hours itself, the former achieving a genuine poignancy, the latter doubly so, both characterised by comforting if melancholy washes of strings, augmented by understated, hymnal piano chords and, finally, more percussive keyboard sounds (systems music by harpsichord?).
