Stephen Oliver's Lady Jane
27-Aug-2017 - Quartet Records in collaboration with Paramount Pictures presents the world premiere release of Stephen Oliver’s magnificent score for Lady Jane (1986), a historical-romantic costume drama. The story begins when the death of King Henry VIII throws his kingdom into chaos over a disputed succession. His weak son, Edward, is on his deathbed. Anxious to keep England true to the Reformation, scheming minister John Dudley marries off his son, Guildford. to Lady Jane Grey, whom he places on the throne after Edward dies. The sumptuous epic and romantic score was composed by Stephen Oliver, one of the foremost British composers of opera and music theatre of his generation. Sadly, Oliver passed away when he was only 42 years old; Lady Jane was his only film score.
