Hanover Street CD release Varèse Sarabande Soundtrack Club

Monday, 23 March 2009 15:46

Hanover Street on CD from Varèse Sarabande Soundtrack ClubMusic Composed by John Barry

Arguably the most sought after, never-before-released, score by John Barry! Without question it is one of the greats … by one of the greats! Hanover Street (1979) is finally available! A 30th anniversary rescue! Believe it!

An epic love story set during the London Blitz of WWII … this is prime Barry from the time of The Black Hole (1979), Moonraker (1979), Somewhere In Time (1980) and Raise The Titanic (1980).

War-torn Europe is the setting for this Peter Hyams-directed romantic action/adventure from Columbia Pictures about the fateful entanglements of two men in love with the same woman. Lt. David Halloran (Harrison Ford), a courageous American bomber pilot, and a British nurse (Lesley-Anne Down) accidentally meet during an air raid and fall instantly in love. Committed to an assignment, David asks her to meet him two weeks later in spite of the fact that she is married. And she does. Her husband, Paul Sellinger (Christopher Plummer), is a British intelligence officer in charge of a special, dangerous mission behind enemy lines. As fate would have it, Halloran is chosen to fly Sellinger on the task. When their plane is shot down, the two must work together to complete the mission - and it is only then that Halloran discovers who Sellinger is.

John Barry’s complete score has been painstakingly restored, filling the CD to capacity! Over 60 minutes of music in glorious stereo plus four bonus cues taken from the sole surviving mono source … this release of Hanover Street has been nothing short of an epic production unto itself. It’s a score that has been held as a holy grail by many since the day they first heard it! This very special release, which launches a very special year for the Varèse Sarabande CD Club, is for them and for all fans of lush, unabashedly romantic, film music!

James Bond fans are in for a treat in January 2019, as renowned Band, the popular Q The Music Show, are putting on a special concert - performing all the music from Moonraker on

26th January 2019

at the

Wycombe Swan Concert Hall,
High Wycombe,
Berkshire
United Kingdom.

You can back the project and buy tickets here

They are drafting in professional musicians from London to create a 100-piece Orchestra and Choir to recreate all of John Barry’s iconic cues from the 1979 film. As there is only around 50 minutes of music in the film, they will perform the best of the James Bond songs in the second half in true Q The Music style, but with full orchestra.

Because of the nature of this concert, and the huge costs involved, they are crowd funding it, so tickets have to be purchased by 6th May this year for the concert to go ahead on Saturday 26th January 2019.

Q The Music Show are popular with James Bond fans all around the World thanks to their dedicated and authentic versions of the music and were chosen to perform at Sir Roger Moore’s Memorial Event at Pinewood Studios in October last year. The concert will be compered by Bond girls Madeline Smith and Caroline Munro, who have been working with Q The Music this year on their theatre tour of the UK.

The concert will not be available to buy on recording after the show, and the Moonraker score has never been performed live, so this is a unique opportunity for fans to see it. If the project is a success, Q The Music plan to go on a do a different Barry/Bond score each year.

*Please note, this is a music only performance – no images or footage from the film will be shown, and Q The Music are not associated with EON, Danjaq LLC, or the James Bond Films in any way.
