I finally bought the film, and then I bought the book.

The music itself is beautifully recorded with a clarity and richness to it that is stirring.

The movie and the score for "To Kill a Mockingbird"have deep resonance for me. As a youngster, I played the originalsoundtrack until it was paper thin. Years later, there was a new recording which I got and was very disappointed. When I saw this latest recording, I got it with trepidation, but was thrilled to hear how closely it matches the original, down to the smallest nuance. The score is not typical of Elmer Bernstein, although it does contain some very recognizeable signature motifs. Yet it remains his most subtle and compelling work, in complete keeping with the movie itself. The opening title music alone is enough to evoke both the film and the time it captures so eloquently. As someone who cannot possibly appreciate the score without associating it with the movie, I played it for a friend who has never actually seen the film, and he was as mesmerized by it as I have ever been. And that is the word for it: mesmerizing. And brilliant. One of the true classics.

This is a brilliant score! If you've ever seen this movie than you should know that the music definitely stood out. Bernstein has created some beautiful themes for this score and weaves them in and out of different tracks. The first and last tracks are pure magic. On these tracks you can hear the main theme played by the full orchestra. In between these tracks Bernstein has the main theme played by the softer parts of the orchestra. Not only is the main theme great to listen to but this album also has great secondary themes. My favorite is the theme for Boo Radley. This theme can be heard at its fullest on track 13. This score is excellent and I highly recommend it to any film music collector or a fan of Elmer Bernstein. Buy this CD and trust me, you won't be sorry you bought it.

We had a chance to watch this movie from a DVD a while back. About three seconds in, during the opening credits, I made a note to myself to get the soundtrack. This is one of those perfect examples of really good music that complements the movie rather than upstaging it.
Just watch Mockingbird's opening credits in widescreen. It's amazing how well the music establishes the tone of the whole film in a split second. The southern setting, the tension of the plot, the coming-of-age theme... it's good work.

the music is a stylistic blend of copland, bartok & satie. a
large orchestral arrangement does not compliment the music.
the origional sound track was for a smaller ensemble & was beautifully restrained. it fit the music better & fit the movie
better. would someone PLEASE RE-ISSUE the origional sound track on
CD!! i know this is america where bigger is better but not in this
case..

This is one of the most beautiful film scores ever written. The CD however is a disaster. It is poorly recorded with terrible sound. The stereo seems to be electronically processed. The original LP is infinitely superior in sound and quality although the contents are identical. If you are fortunate enough to own the original LP, do not replace it with this CD. This is one case in which the CD ani't worth the effort.

Undoubtedly TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD is a masterpiece score, and no small thanks goes to orchestrators Leo Shuken and Jack Hayes. In addition to this fine (but rather over-produced Varese recording) is the Mainstream CD re-issue of the original Ava LP release. Sadly not only is the Mainstream CD deleted, but it was missing one track and several other tracks have become distorted, perhaps due to improper storage. Screen Archives currently offer a 1970's re-recording as part of an 11 CD set, this one with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, also conducted by Bernstein. I recommend this as closest to the original, other than the actual Ava LP.

This is one of the most sensitive American scores ever written for a motion picture. The " Main Title" is so beautiful and so touching it makes my eyes glow and tear up when I listen to it. This is such a multi-faceted score full of Americana, childlike fear and wonder and magic.

This has to be one of the most enjoyable and one of the best gems you could ever get your hands on. To Kill a Mockingbird is a great score. One of the best of all time. "Main Title" is a true delight. "Atticus Accepts the Case/Roll in the Tire", "Creepy Caper/Peek-a-Boo", "Tree Treasure", "Lynch Mob", "Foosteps in the Dark", "Boo Who?" and the "End Title" are all great. It has so many elements working for it. It is warm, curious, impressionistic, and occassionaly nightmarish. And it's very child-like in nature. Get this soundtrack for your collection. You will not regret it!
