SoundtrackNet has posted clips from Harry Gregson-Williams’ evocative score for The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. You can hear them here. You will need the latest version of Quicktime to hear the tracks, and if you don’t have it you can download it here.

SoundtrackNet says: The production of the score for The Chronicles of Narnia was on a grand scale. From late September until early November, Gregson-Williams conducted the 75-piece Hollywood Studio Symphony and supervised the recording of the 140-member choir at Abbey Road in London. Additional solo musicians were recorded at his Wavecrest Studio, including vocalist Lisbeth Scott and electric violinist Hugh Marsh. The result is simply astounding. Bold orchestrations, strong choir, and careful thematic development define this score as one of the best of the year.

The cues are:

The Blitz, 1940
Evacuating London
The Wardrobe
Lucy Meets Mr Tumnus
A Narnia Lullaby
The White Witch
From Western Woods to Beaversdam
Father Christmas
To Aslan’s Camp
Knighting Peter
The Stone Table
The Battle
Only the Beginning of the Adventure

There are also four songs in the soundtrack:

“Can’t Take It In” – Imogen Heap
“Wunderkind” – Alanis Morissette
“Winter Light” – Tim Finn
“Where” – Lisbeth Scott
