Mary Queen Of Scots - first time on CD by IntradaWorld premiere CD release of original soundtrack from Hal Wallis production starring Vanessa Redgrave, Glenda Jackson, Patrick McGoohan, Timothy Dalton. Academy Award-nominated score by John Barry anchors with incredibly gentle "Mary's Theme" for harpsichord, strings. In contrast is dynamic secondary theme for brass that heralds 16th century setting. Powerful idea spotlights trumpets with rhythmic idea using two-part harmony while French horns impose powerful, angular theme underneath. Bravura Barry! Varied score also takes dramatic turn with dark material, James Bond-ish ideas plus lovely melody for Vanessa Redgrave to sing ("Vivre et Mourir".) While mono-only scoring elements made rounds for recent Universal DVD presentation, Intrada licensed precious original Decca stereo album masters housed in UMG vaults. While additional music was unavailable for release, Intrada proudly offers entire 1971 stereo album as produced by composer. Program offers music both haunting & powerful, results in one of Barry's all-time greats. Authoritative notes by Jon Burlingame illuminate film production & scoring. John Barry conducts. Special Collection CD limited to 3000 copies!
