Season 2 of the Emmy® Award-winning Downton Abbey returns as The Great War rages across Europe, and not even the serene Yorkshire countryside is free from its effects. The men and women of Downton are doing their part both on the front lines and the home front, but the intensity of war only serves to inflame the more familiar passions--love, loss, blackmail, and betrayal.
The original soundtrack is by acclaimed composer John Lunn. Featured on the soundtrack is acclaimed Decca signed tenor, Alfie Boe, performing the songs "If You Were The Only Girl In The World" and "Roses of Picardy"
Comments about PBS Downton Abbey Season 1 and 2 DVD & Official Soundtrack CD:
The acting is wonderful, the roles seem to be perfectly cast. I anxiously awaited season two, and now am anxious for season three. Bravo to all involved. This is entertainment with a story and not reliant on HORRIBLE special effects.
