Splendid Oscar-Winning Score Ranks With Barry's Finest.
by
filmfactsman (April 11, 2006)
1968 was a red-hot year for Oscar-nominated film scores: "Planet of the Apes" (Jerry Goldsmith), "The Thomas Crown Affair" (Michel Legrand), "The Shoes of the Fisherman" (Alex North) and "The Fox" (Lalo Schifrin)--all worthy candidates. John Barry's quasi-medieval score for "The Lion in Winter" truly demonstrates the composer's incredibly versatile perspective. With a challenging task at hand, (creating an original musical score for a historical drama that occurs in the year 1183), Barry devised with "great trepidations" (his words) a beautiful, harmonically complex set of compositions which are rich with texture and substance, and are still memorable nearly 40 years later. The themes depicting the Catholic Church are particularly powerful, and two original "period" songs (composed by Barry and the film's Oscar-winning screenwriter, James Goldman) stand out as radiant examples of the composer's willingness to integrate new forms into his repertoire of musical stylings in which Barry repeated three years later with his Oscar-nominated score for "Mary, Queen of Scots" (1971). The meticulous stereo remastering allows the full breadth of the rich original recording to shine through with unequaled brilliance.
