“I have been recording the piano album over the last three years in between many other projects and I hope you enjoy listening to the melodies as much as I did reliving the lovely memories,” Doyle was recently quoted as saying. “This album is one of two planned volumes of the many film themes that I have composed over the last 25 years. The tracks on the album are not in chronological order, for as our memories are jumbled up and flit from one particular moment to the other, so does the album.”
