Duration: 17:51

Notes:

All times are approximate as many tracks overlap one another during the transitions.

In addition to composing the original music featured in the film, Norman "Buddy" Baker arranged the classical compositions and conducted the London Symphony Orchestra in the performances of all of the musical selections. The solo artist for Debussy's Syrinx was Eddie Beckett of the London Symphony Orchestra.

The entire film score (except "Bells in Church") was available for a short time on the Walt Disney World Forever CD on-demand system as five separate tracks before they were removed from circulation. The musical selections above which are featured on the Four Parks • One World: Walt Disney World Official Album (2008) are contained in a suite (9 minutes and 52 seconds in length), which can also be found on the following CDs:
This playlist was compiled by thx99 and is based on official listings released by the Walt Disney Company, the Walt Disney World Forever recordings, reference recordings provided/produced by Pantryman (unknown date) and Horizons (circa 2008), and information contained in the Norman "Buddy" Baker Collection (Fales Library and Special Collections/Elmer Holmes Bobst Library at New York University), which was obtained and graciously shared by Club 33. Specifically, the breakdown and cue titles for most of the original Baker compositions are taken from a listing (with possible typos) contained in the Collection.

With regard to the official listings, there have been at least three versions distributed by Disney:
The 1990-91 version is the most detailed, highlighting not only the music but the settings and landmarks for each scene. Each of the three listings contain inaccuracies regarding the musical selections, with the 1999 and 2000 listings containing more significant errors.

You said:

"The entire film score was available for a short time on the Walt Disney World Forever CD on-demand system as five separate tracks before they were removed from circulation."

However, Track 04 in your listing does not show as being available on the Forever release. What exactly is this track and was it included in the Forever release?

My thought is that Track 04 ("Bells in Church", as titled in the information provided by Club 33) refers literally to the church bells heard in "Scene 07 Vezelay Church interior, with church bells in the background" (see 1990-91 official listing above), which may have been "scored" and recorded by Baker for the film, as opposed to having been simply recorded at the actual church.

OR, Baker did indeed compose a piece of music which went unused for this scene.

Admittedly, if it's the former, the bells play more as sound effects than they do as music, but seeing as this cue was specifically listed in the Baker Collection materials, I felt compelled to include it.

In either case, it's not included in the Forever release and I have modified the Playlist accordingly.
