Notes and Editorial Reviews
British Film Classics' represents some of the greatest film music ever written in some of the finest recorded performances. The repertoire juxtaposes some much-loved film scores with unexpected and original items, to form a highly satisfying and enjoyable collection. This 2CD set is available for the price of one full-price disc, in an attractive slimline double package. The moods range from the sumptuously romantic, such as the music of 'Lady Caroline Lamb', to the swashbuckling brilliance of Walton's Shakespearean scores and the high-adrenaline excitement of Ron Goodwin's '633 Squadron'. Many of the great classic scores of the 1940s are included and are, in some cases, taken from the only modern versions available.
