Goodwin's & Walton's The Battle Of Britain
18-Jun-2004 - Varèse Sarabande has released the war classic The Battle Of Britain. It's the story of the air battle in the skies over England in the summer of 1940. The vastly outnumbered RAF managed to soundly defeat Hitler’s Luftwaffe, which was bombing London as the demoralizing and destabilizing precursor to a planned invasion of the UK (code name Operation Sea Lion). Originally, renowned British composer Sir William Walton was commissioned to score the film. The producers, however, rejected it and Ron Goodwin wrote a new score that was used in the film. This special edition CD also includes Sir William Walton’s unused score. For more info, visit Varèse Sarabande.
