The Patriot Soundtrack
composed by John Williams
This understated soundtrack was scored by John Williams (Star Wars, Indiana Jones). Unlike some of his other works, it doesn't have any overpowering themes. Instead we are given a few unassuming themes using simple instrumental arrangements that recall patriotic music. The soundtrack features flutes and drums that weave the major themes in and out of the music. It is at times haunting and other times upbeat. It is really the type of score that plays off one's emotions, rather than controlling one's emotions as some of Williams' other scores do.
