Hagood Hardy is his name. I'm pretty sure that the music was written specifically for Anne of Green Gables, and Avonlea. *sigh* So beautiful.........

PS
I've heard that music hath charms to calm the savage beast. :fyi:

Marilyn........I meant to ask you earlier, but every time I get online, I get interrupted, and have to get back offline again! Did Ian Clark have the same accent as he had in Avonlea?

(Of course.....I would never argue in such a manner! *Savannah dons her halo* batEyes )


I had to bump this part of the post from the last page, just in case it gets missed by Marilyn. I really want to know about his accent . . . . I loved it so much! Nobody has ever accused me of having an appalling lack of curiosity. grinsmiley I don't suffer from a case of severe curiosity, though.......I enjoy every moment of it. :thankyou:

There's a soundtrack on both cd and cassette, I think. Plus there's sheet music available in simplified and advanced copies. They're probably available at the official Anne site. I bought them before the internet was even around. Good thing Al Gore finally got around to that! :Hahaha:

There's one measure toward the end of Anne's theme, that sounds like it was inspired by a measure from Debussy's Clair de lune. I've always wondered if Hagood Hardy did that on purpose, or if it was just coincidental.

D*** I tried to find it on youtube but failed to. I love the theme music and would love to hear the entire piece. Itīs so rare that such soundtracks are available where I live

The music to Anne of Green Gables was so gorgeous, wasn't it! I bought the sheet music to it when I was 14 or so, and played it SOOOO often. I took chord progressions, and patterns from that music and put it in with other songs when I was putting together arrangements. Yeah......I was pretty obsessed. lol *sigh* The Anne music was so beautiful!

Hi Savannah, Ian Clark didn't have an accent when I met him on Saturday. He was playing a son of Scotland and so I guess he made up the accent for the show. James O'Regan mentioned that he tried to speak as an easterner for his part of Constable Jeffries. He tried to make his character talk fast as they do in the Eastern provinces of Canada.
One of the ladies asked Michael to speak in his Gus accent and he obliged us and spoke as he did on the show. It was really cool.
I am on vacation for 2 weeks but promise to post my pics when I return home in mid Aug.

You'll find many kindred spirits here. There are a lot of us who love Anne. I watched it so much when I was in my early teens, that I had it memorized - word for word. I still use catch-phrases from the Anne books and movies. grinsmiley My friends are used to it now.

omg! i'm in my teens and i know every word of it! lol :woohooo: i LOVE Anne of Green Gables she is my fave but Gilbert what a babe! :shy:
