John Barry produced an awesome soundtrack to match the writing, starpower, acting, and breathtaking cinematography of this blockbuster movie. Peter O'Toole, Katherine Hepburn, and Anthony Hopkins provide the best "clash of the titans" available in any movie, and Hopkins is the junior partner as Richard the Lionhearted!.
The music not only places us in Medieval times, but superbly matches the action on the screen and the powerful emotional interplay of the characters. Choral, chamber, and orchestral pieces are all original and fully developed and excellently performed.
This CD is a great stress-reducer. Anyone who appreciates serious music will want this album, and continue to be amazed by the depth and breadth of John Barry's work.
