Jerry Goldsmith's chilling soundtrack music for Richard Donner's 1976 Antichrist-themed thriller The Omen was very nearly the score that never was; an unusual, last-minute budget extension was granted solely to secure the composer's services. That decision turned out to be one of the wisest the studio could make. Goldsmith's music would go on to score him his first Oscar® and a Grammy award and become the crucial thematic glue that held the entire Omen trilogy together. Standing the traditional requiem form on its head, Goldsmith in essence created Satanic liturgical music. As chorally ominous as Orff's Carmina Burana, yet infused with the composer's own compelling sense of drama and color, The Omen instantly became both a genre classic and one of the musician's greatest achievements. Varese's 25th anniversary edition has largely resequenced the track order to match the film and expanded it by nearly a third with seven previously unreleased cues. These new tracks add dimensions of both pastoral calm and mounting suspense, making the familiar "Ave Satani" theme even darker and more spine tingling by contrast. Edition producer Robert Townson's detailed new notes also carefully place each cue in its cinematic and musical context. --Jerry McCulley

The choir intones the Latin phrases they will utilize for the rest of the score.
Claude Avary
Well, that's what Jerry Goldsmith did! "The Omen" remains a highlight among decades of supernatural thrillers, and its score ranks as one of the very best of its era.
XNS
It's fantastic the fact that Varèse Sarabande released this deluxe edition with all the music written for the film and in chronological order.

The score to the "The Omen" netted famous composer Jerry Goldsmith his only Oscar (beating out two scores by Bernard Herrmann!) out of his many nominations. Few horror film scores -- indeed, scores to any kind of film -- have been as influential as this dive into Satanic terror. But on its own, "The Omen" score is something even larger than accompaniment to a scary film. This CD, which restores music missing from the original LP and CD release and puts the cues in chronological order, shows that "The Omen" score is a masterpiece of American concert music, sort of an orchestral/choral tone poem of fear and sadness. It's an unnerving thing to listen to for the first time (scared me half to death first time I heard it, and I hadn't even seen the film yet), but becomes more impressive and even beautiful with each additional listening. There is really nothing else like it in film music: a dark, gorgeous piece of profane music.
This CD is still missing a number of smaller cues from the film, such as Lee Remick's death, the unused music for the early appearances of the dog, and the evil nanny's first meeting with Damien, but it restores most of the important pieces that were unavailable until now: "I Was There," (Father Brennan's first attempt to explain to ambassador Thorn who his son is), "Broken Vows" (the approach to the church when Damien has his fit), "The Day He Died" (searching Brennan's apartment), and "Beheaded" (self-explanatory).
The score is based on two ideas. First is a Black Mass, an inversion of the Catholic mass, sung by a mixed choir.

Often the case I have noticed with original releases of soundtracks that only a certain selection of tracks make it onto the record, and still there is a considerable amount of music featured on the film's soundtrack that is left out and these arn't always reprises of familiar themes but other themes that very much make an impact.
I always found this a disappointing case with many fine soundtracks having compared the amount of music on the film itself and the actual soundtrack album. Why should some of the finest music composed be restricted to one medium??
Now all that seems to be changing with a significant number of classic soundtracks been reissued and remastered with additional material and the new Deluxe version of 'The Omen' is a fitting and very pleasing example of a timeless and very powerful Jerry Goldsmith score which has earned Goldsmith so far his only Oscar for best original score 1977. Goldsmith's music for 'The Omen' made an an already frightning film all the more effective with this masterful and highly original experimentation of the horror genre.
The malevolent use of diabolical vocals and chantings from a choir as well as the eerie use of violins and other instruments make this still the finest horror score. I remenber first listening to this soundtrack in the dark for the first time and to say it was quite unsettling was an understatement.
Along with never before been released tracks(a total of eight)the sound quality is a definite improvement and the packaging is splendid!!!
I'm now looking froward to 'The Final Conflict' Deluxe edition!!!
Its a pity that there will be no Deluxe edition at this time for 'Damien Omen II' as I believe the rights to that album is still owned by Silvascreen!!!
Highly recommended!!!
Enjoy!!! If you dare!!!!

I am a huge fan of Jerry Goldsmith, but the undeniably most impactive score that I've ever heard under his name is this CD.

The 1976 success of Richard Donner's masterpeice is without a doubt 86% due to Jerry Goldsmith's requiem-stylized suites.

The tracks that stand out in this lister's brain are "Ave Satani," (once you hear in on the movie track, it will be instantly engraved in your mind.) "The Dog's Attack," enormously beacuse, when I hear it, my mood changes--as does with any music I listen to) and, course, who can forget the pressing motif in "the Altar" (I love it, and so will you.)

So, if your looking to listen to a killer score that will blow you out of your seat, slip this sweet little CD in and prepare yutrself for this beautifully remastered 25th Anniversary Edition of Jerry Goldsmith score to one of the most memmorable films of our time--THE OMEN

Although this is a very noteworthy and long overdue extended release of one of the most important scores ever written for a movie, it is somewhat bothering that this edition still isn't final. There are still missing more than five minutes of original material of which 2 cues ("Father Spiletto" and "Kathy's Death")are to be considered absolute highlights next to the finally released cues such as "Broken Vows","Beheaded" and of course the classic chillers like "Ave Satani","The Killer Storm" and "..Mrs Baylock". As for the release itself, what you get is first-class and a must-have for every collector : 5 stars for the music minus one for the missing cues. Enjoy it!
