[[Nicholas Hooper]]'s score for the fifth film relied far less on a thematic approach, instead favouring incidental and atmospheric music.
 
[[Nicholas Hooper]]'s score for the fifth film relied far less on a thematic approach, instead favouring incidental and atmospheric music.
In March and April of 2007, [[Nicholas Hooper|Hooper]] and the London Chamber Orchestra recorded nearly two hours of music at Abbey Road Studios in London. Unlike the film and book, the score does not follow the rule of as the series becoming darker with each susequent installement. Despite this, ''two new main themes'' reflect the sinister new character [[Dolores Umbridge]], and [[Tom Riddle|Lord Voldemort]]'s invasion of Harry's mind.

*'''[[Professor]] [[Dolores Umbridge|Umbridge]]'''<ref name="OP">''[[Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (film)]]''</ref> - Theme for the new Ministry-appointed Defence Against the Dark Arts Teacher/High Inquisitor Dolores Umbridge. Comprises two sections; the first a descending motif in high winds and glockenspiel accompanied by heavy brass and the secondary part a pompous, rising march. As the score progresses the theme becomes more ominous, reflecting the true nature of the cruel and callous Umbridge.
