James Horner has just started recording his score to Carlo Carlei's film in Abbey Road 1 and Air Studios in London. On both his Twitter and Facebook account, the British countertenor Iestyn Davies shared two pictures from the recording sessions, along with some of his impressions:
"My view from the booth, Studio 1 Abbey Road. There's James 'Titanic' Horner waving.".
"Have to say, James Horner's Romeo & Juliet score made me weep eternally in the sound booth. Took me back to Titanic 1997"
"Lovely atmosphere last night. Enjoyed the evening hugely! Now off to Abbey Road (clang) to sing some James Horner."
"Final day of recording with James Horner for Romeo & Juliet. Today at Air Studios, with Sissel. Norwegians will be happy."
