It’s really beautiful!
July 14, 2016
Hi, Is this soundtrack going to be available on CD ?
If not is this download available worldwide, I’m in Australia
Hi Damon. The soundtrack is not available on CD but is downloadable in Australia.
All the best
It is incredible, thank you so much for making it available.
Hi are all the tracks from the series on this download? Are you
July 15, 2016
Yes we wrote the tracks.Not all the tracks are on this download -we wrote over 200 pieces for the show – but all the featured songs are on there.
All the best

Hi- love the music and have just downloaded it (thanks again for making it available), but I don’t seem to be able to open the files? Any idea where I may be going wrong..?
July 16, 2016
The file is a compressed ZIP file which should open when you double click on it. If this doesn’t work try downloading an app which will uncompress the ZIP – there are loads of free ones. Let me know if this doesn’t work.
All the best

I’ve downloaded it too and can’t open it, tried everything.
July 21, 2016
How are you getting on ? Yes a few people have had problems – many of those were using old operating systems particularly Windows. Can you not try downloading onto a different computer – you can download more than once. If this is not possible let me know and we will refund you.
Thanks for the soundtrack guys, brilliant to hear old english music brought to life again, and genius points for getting Elizabeth Fraser to lend her vocal talents 🙂

I just bought and downloaded this and I got nothing. Am I doing something wrong?

I was captivated by the soundtrack you created for ‘The Living and The Dead’, and then lo and behold transfixed when in the middle of episode 1 I heard the umistakable Elizabeth Fraser sing ‘She Moves Through the Fair’ and also ‘The Lover’s Ghost’. How wonderful to hear her sing again. Thank you for bringing some magic to our lives in these dark days.
July 24, 2016
Thanks so much Sanjit. Elizabeth Fraser is indeed a wonderful and unique singer and it was a privilege to work with her. Hopefully we can persuade her to do some more tracks.
Yes these are dark and disturbing days. To quote Elvis Costello ‘What’s so funny ’bout Love Peace and Understanding ?’
All the best,
The Insects AND elizabeth… this has made my year..
I don’t know how but I managed to open the files on media player so please accept my apologies and ignore my previous correspondence. Regards, Brian
That’s good news Brian ! Hope you enjoy the music.
PAID MY 7.99 AND CLICKED TO DOWNLOAD. NOTHING HAPPENS. CLICKED IT AGAIN AND IT SAYS THE DOWNLOAD LIMIT HAS BEEN EXCEEDED FOR THE FILE!!! WTF?!?!?! YOU HAVE RIPPED ME OFF!! GIVE ME MY F*CKING FILES YOU SCAMMERS! DO IT NOW OR I AM REPORTING YOU FOR FRAUD VIA PAYPAL! 🙁

Downloaded and listened to thoroughly, absolutely sublime, excellent soundtrack, great work, cannot wait to see what you have for us with Season 2.
The Reapers Ghost is Beautiful!
I fell in love with the music of this series straightaway and it really adds to the atmospheric beauty of this great drama. I hoped that one way or another I would be able to buy the music and so I am delighted to find that you’ve made it available as a download. Thank you so much! I did have problems opening the file too after I’d downloaded it – even though I’ve got Windows 10 – but I used the other link that you’ve posted above in a reply to a previous comment and that works fine.
July 26, 2016
Ethereal and love it.
July 27, 2016
Beautiful music! Thank you!
Hi I just purchased the album but it wont play after I downloaded it. Tried everything,
The file you downloaded is a compressed ZIP file.This needs to be ‘unzipped’ to access the music. Usually double clicking on the file will do the trick.Windows 10 should be fine for this – otherwise you can get loads of free apps that will deal with ZIP files.
Let us know if you have further problems,
July 28, 2016
LOVE the soundtrack, love the show! Thanks for making it available guys! It’s like listening to a modern day version of Paul Giovanni’s The Wicker Man soundtrack! Haunting!
Thanks Shane !
July 29, 2016
Thank you so much for releasing that wonderful soundtrack! Any case of buying individual tracks instead of the whole album?
Great to find this soundtrack available, it’s a major part of my enjoyment of the series, and Elizabeth Fraser’s version of She Moves Through The Fair is just wonderful.
What format is the download? I always buy lossless files (FLAC) if at all possible, but I guess it is more likely to be mp3? If so is there any chance of a lossless option?
August 1, 2016
Thanks Ewan. No I’m afraid the soundtrack is only available as an mp3 at the moment but we’ve done everything we can to ensure the best possible quality in that format.
Hi. I’ve just tried to download this soundtrack but couldn’t open it. I got a zip file opener app but it just says the file is currupted
Hi again. I’ve now had to delete the download as I couldn’t access it & it messed up my tablet.
We’ll look into this Vicky and if we can’t resolve the problem, we’ll give you a full refund.
July 31, 2016
Hi there – just downloaded this fantastic soundtrack – thanks for publishing it. Can I ask – is it possible to get an uncompressed version? A .wav or FLAC file maybe?
Thanks Neil. No it’s only available as an mp3 at the moment but please keep an eye on our website for any future release on different formats. The Insects
As an ex pat living in the States this music was the perfect soundtrack to something so gorgeously filmed that it made me quite homesick… looking forward to hearing more in the near future..
Thanks once again
Thanks for your kind words Rich. Hope you’re not feeling too homesick! The Insects

Who is the singer on She Moves Through The Fair?
August 3, 2016
Hi Bill, Elizabeth Fraser sings “She Moves Through the Fair,” she also sings “The Lover’s Ghost.”
Hi guys, just wanted to congratulate you on your excellent soundtrack for THE LIVING AND THE DEAD. And the album is a great companion to the series.
I was wondering if any additional music will be made available at some point in the future, perhaps on your Soundcloud page? With so much music being composed for a series such as this, there’s several pieces that featured on-screen that didn’t make it on the album – maybe even because these track titles contained spoilers?!
August 4, 2016
Thank you Alan. We may well make additional music from the series available so please keep an eye on our website for info. SPOILERS?! There are a couple aren’t there. OUCH!
August 5, 2016
Thanks for the reply.
I was wondering whether you specifically orchestrated the music for the ‘modern day’ aspect of the story any differently from Nathan’s time period? Or whether you used specific music?
August 9, 2016
We did a bit of both if I’m honest Alan. We tried to make the modern day music subtly different so as not to be too in your face.
Where’s the tracklist before purchasing? Just gives option to paypal or credit but no listing first!. Cheers.
Who is singing the title sound track please
Mark Legassick aka Howlin’ Lord.
Is this going to be available to download from amazon uk?
No. Only available from our website.
August 6, 2016
I did purchase through your website. Had a problem unzipping the file on my android phone but managed it with an app called RAR. Winzip wouldn’t work which was weird as that’s the original. Anyway, it’s a-m-a-z-i-n-g!
Well done for the great music, the album and for making it available.
Thank you Paul and thanks for RAR app tip. I’ll certainly let others know if they have the same problem.
Strangely it seems you missed out answering my question?

1. The Living and the Dead
2. Nathan and Agnes
3. The Brave Ploughboy
4. She Moves Through The Fair

Looks great and will purchase later. Well done on yet more stunning music. Cheers.
Thank you very much.
How did you go about getting Elizabeth Fraser to sing on this beautiful soundtrack? Cocteau Twins ate my all-time favorite group and she has the voice of god! Thx for the brilliant music. Craig
August 10, 2016
How did we go about getting Elizabeth Fraser to sing on the soundtrack? I went round her house and asked her. She only lives up the road from me! We were though very chuffed when she said she’d give it a go and you’re right, she certainly has an amazing voice. Thanks for your kind words Craig. Bob
A most interesting list. Is it possible to get a snippet listen the tracks as I get when downloading my Apple music>
Sorry Denis we’re not set up to do that. I guess you’ll have to bite the bullet and pray that the album is as good as some people say it is?!
Totally loved the music from the series, please release on CD and not just poxy download!!!! I want!!!
We’ve no plan to release on CD presently Julia but I promise you we’ve done everything possible to make our poxy download sound er not poxy!
Hi I have already paid. How to download?
August 11, 2016
Got my DVD today – and fell in love with the soundtrack after hearing the theme the first time. Five minutes later I’d found the download and bought it. Brilliant!!!! Thanks a lot for the wonderful music. Greetings from Germany from a new fan.
August 14, 2016
Excellent soundtrack. I was really looking forward to being able to listen to it while out and about but somehow it will not download. also I have not received an email with a link. I have used 6 of the 10 downloads and all have failed.
Check out our download info on the ‘news’ section on our home page – I think we have covered all scenarios but let us know if you’re still having problems and we will sort it out for you.

November 4, 2016
Just downloaded this, so glad you made these tracks accessible. No problems here.
December 13, 2016
Thank you for the great soundtrack to the best thing on tv this year.I am so upset series 2 is cancelled.I just pray another network picks it up to allow it to continue.Congratulations for the music and the show.
December 14, 2016
I’ve just bought it, now it’s in downloading. I really love the soundtrack in the serial, so I could’t resist!
Nice job. Have a good day.
March 28, 2017
Just downloaded the soundtrack, it worked straight away for me (mac user)
It sounds wonderful.
Were there any more Elizabeth Fraser songs?
There’s a snippet of a song called the Purple Pileus, is this an Insects production?
Thanks for the beautiful music…btw I also adore the album Hometime you produced for Alison Moyet!
April 9, 2017
THANK YOU!!! I’m a bt late catching on to the download but I am delighted to now have the download of The Living & The Dead soundtrack. Your wonderful music has haunted me since watching the series and no version of Lyke Wake Dirge would do for me but yours. Stunning album. Sounds fantastic, even better than I remembered. Do you ever play ‘live’?
I love your work. (Did you do that swishing sound for Wire in the Blood?) Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant.
July 4, 2017
(I hope someone’s still reading…) I love the series and was particularly charmed by The Reaper’s Ghost. Can I purchase that one song without having to buy the whole album?
Thanks in advance!
July 5, 2017
Hi Mark. Sorry but we are not set up to sell single tracks.
August 21, 2017
Really nice stuff – great work (i ordered)! I HOPE the second episode will be produced. Why wouldn’t BBC? The story is good:
October 3, 2017
I love the soundtrack, I really do, but what I’d love even more would be the whole soundtrack or at least most of it. I really like the classic pieces in between and not just the featured songs. And I love hard-copies, so to say 😉 Something I can touch, with a booklet that contains the texts of the songs that I like so much. Your music deserves such a display. Will this be available at some point?
With best wishes
November 18, 2017
Thank you so much for making the soundtrack available! I *love* the music from The Living and the Dead, and am so happy I can hear it without having to marathon the season.
