Indeed - not to forget Poledouris.

From WAYLTN thread:
I don't recall ever having a compilation film music album where I have enjoyed every track, however this one (original soundtrack recordings) certainly comes into that category:

Oh, neat!  I knew that Vaughan Williams had written numerous film music, but hadn't realized that those others did.  Curious as to which films?

That's a great set and amazing value for the three CDS.

Thanks for the list...and the reminder.  I do have (and enjoy) The Perfect Fool on this CD And a BBC MM CD of Walton's Henry V.  Just might have the Delius in a set (conductor, not of Delius).  Have El Amor (concert version only I think??).  Definitely don't know the other works.

That's a great set and amazing value for the three CDS.
Thanks.  I'll look into it.  :)

Great production value, too: the 3 discs are housed in cardboard envelopes printed with the original artwork, and the 3 individual disc booklets - all in a slim cardboard set !

I sent an email to Chandos asking them to give the Thomson set of Bax orchestral works (9 discs excluding the symphonies) the same treatment.

Good plan!

Having watched 'Tora, Tora, Tora' on TV the other night (so much better than 'Pearl Harbour') I thought that I'd fish out my Jerry Goldsmith soundtrack CD. I especially liked the 'End Title' where Admiral Yamamoto, having made his prophetic 'awakened a sleeping giant and filled it with a terrible resolve' speech, walks out alone on one of the Japanese battleships and stares out to sea. I've just played it four times. Jerry Goldsmith was such a great and versatile composer:

Such a great, great film too!  Not so much a war movie as a character study of a very interesting war leader.  Fantastic performances, directing, and score of course which is sparingly used.  The 3 hours film only has around 30 minutes of music.  Also interesting is how Goldsmith's score combines religion (the organ hymnal representing Patton's faith), reincarnation (Patton believed he was reincarnated ancient warrior who retained all he learned in previous battles and represented by the trumpet echoflex), and march (representing the decorated military career). All these elements are combined throughout the score.

Ah yes, Patton was a great film with a very memorable score although I was talking about 'Tora, Tora, Tora' which occupies much less of the CD. Nice modern recordings of both works.

Very much enjoying this new arrival in excellent sound. A pity that Bogey is no longer contributing to the Forum:
