Theme music.
« on: September 30, 2018, 01:20:56 PM »
Bit of a long shot but anyone recognise the music from about two minutes in to the end of the Pathe News feature about the death of Donald Campbell (an event I remember).

It may well be music written for the feature but it also sounds to me like the music of an American composer like Willliam Schuman:

Good morning,

I wasn't able to open the link. Could it be this YT film?

Well, thank you very much Peter for listening to it anyway. Yes, You Tube clip.

Copland? The mention of Let Us Now Praise Famous Men reminds me that Agee's novel inspired Copland to write his opera The Tender Land.

Thanks so much for listening to it. It does indeed sound like Copland but I'm pretty familiar with Copland's work and don't recognise it. I'm sure it's American though.
