Title - 'The Librarians' (Soundtrack)
Artist - Joseph LoDuca
For those not familiar with the TV show, 'The Librarians,' was developed by John Rogers, broadcast on TNT, premiered on December 7th, 2014, and is a direct spin-off of 'The Librarian' film series. Rebecca Romijn and Noah Wylie lead a group of, well, you guessed it, librarians who set off on adventures in an effort to save mysterious, ancient artifacts. Oh, and for those playing along at home, yes, on February 12th of this very year, TNT renewed the series for a 10 episode second season.
OK, now that we're all caught up, Joseph LoDuca - a well known TV composer whose works include Xena, Spartacus and Hercules - has done a terrific, euphoric musical job here, composing tracks that fairly bounce along with the action (as you perceive it unfolding in your mind - given the track titles).

'The Librarians' is, as I'm sure you have already guessed, a fantasy/adventure series, whose weekly stories include battles with demons, monsters and regaled tales of the learned nerd who saves the world from evil! So, here amongst the en mass of 25 tracks we find rollercoaster moments, mid-tempo stomach churners, and even a full orchestra to match the enormity of their tasks, in general.
With an underbelly of that orchestra always prevalent, this soundtrack score also features a couple of truly amazing female vocals moments. In particular, and noticeably, Beth Rowley (a Londoner) on 'Cassandra's Theme' and the delightful Raya Yarbrough on 'Star Light, Star Bright.'
