The good people over at Soundtrack.Net have posted samples for each track on the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix soundtrack.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix Soundtrack Sample
After scoring the first three Harry Potter films, and writing a plethora of themes, composer John Williams passed the baton on to composer Patrick Doyle, who wrote his own themes, but kept Williams' "Hedwig's Theme" and integrated it into his score. As the books have progressively gotten darker, so have the films, with Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire taking advantage of Doyle's ability to write lush melodies and strongly dramatic action cues.

Director David Yates, who is relatively unknown to audiences in the USA, was tapped to direct the next film, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, and insisted in bringing along the composer he has collaborated with in the past, BAFTA-winner Nicholas Hooper, also relatively unknown to American audiences. Hooper won over the Warner Brothers music department, and subsequently wrote over two hours of score for the film, which was recorded this past spring at Abbey Road, in London. Mixed by Peter Cobbin and recorded with the Chamber Orchestra of London, Hooper - like Doyle - wrote new themes, while retaining "Hedwig's Theme" for key moments.
