Notes and Editorial Reviews

" Now, Voyager present[s] a virtual orgy of Max Steiner’s ultra-conservative, floridly romantic, and easily recognizable sound. Most of the music is taken from his scores for 1940s Warner Brothers dramas. In addition to a well-selected suite from his Oscar-winning score for Now, Voyager , other highlights are music from King Kong (with unrivaled sound) and the classic Main Title sequence from Since You Went Away. "
