Clannad Original Soundtrack Cover

Title: CLANNAD Original Soundtrack
Composer: Jun Maeda, Shinji Orito, and Magome Togoshi.
Distributor: Key Sound Label
Release Date: August 13, 2004

All the bases are covered with this soundtrack, from calm intermission, comedic to silly scenes, sustained suspense and action, and above all the dramatic and heartbreaking music.
