'Harry Potter' collector's soundtrack box set limited to 10,000

A limited edition of 10,000 collector's box sets of the soundtrack for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 is available for pre-ordering on Amazon, already reaching number eight on its Soundtracks Chart. It will be released December 21.

Individually numbered with a Certificate of Authenticity, this special package for the upcoming film includes the following items:

- A 7-inch double-sided picture vinyl disc with the film score, a CD with the original soundtrack and a second CD with an additional score.

- A DVD with composer Alexandre Desplat's score and a 7-minute video featurette of the recording session, including interviews with Desplat and producers David Heyman and David Barron.

- Orchestral sheet music from a recording session at Abbey Road Studios signed by Alexandre Desplat. Also, a movie poster and PremierCell presentation with 35mm photographic images from the film.

Composer Amexandre Desplat has also written music for The Twilight Saga: New Moon, The Queen and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.

This seventh and penultimate installment of the film franchise from J.K. Rowling's blockbuster novels, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 finds Voldemort's power growing as he takes control over the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts. Harry, Ron, and Hermione decide to finish Dumbledore's work and find the Horcruxes in order to defeat the Dark Lord. There seems to be little hope for the trio and the Wizarding World.
