I know that many of you, like me, bought what they thought was the 'soundtrack' to Excalibur on vinyl back in the 80's. It had the picture from the movie poster on the cover. A 'real' soundtrack never came out. All you saw at best were collections of the classical music in the film.

THIS is the REAL Excalibur soundtrack!! All the music that you know and love and heard in the movie and even a track or two that didn't make the film. I got my copy from Dandalf a few years ago and have never regretted it one bit. Love the movie? BUY this soundtrack. Forget all the others that claim to have music from the soundtrack. They may have versions of music from the soundtrack. But THIS is the REAL THING!!!!

Stop hesitating. Hit the "Buy" button NOW!

I've waited a quarter century, since the release of the film, for a faithful reproduction of Boorman's movie soundtrack. The perfect blend of (Wagner's) classical pieces with more modern work is brought out so well in modern CD format you could almost close your eyes & imagination you're back in one of Manhattan's old movie palaces.

As many others, I was delighted to see this soundtrack re-issued, it is magnificent, in every aspect. Still, I am a bit confused since I have a
vinyl soundtrack,(unfortunately it is damaged)issued in 1981. That recording was different, few tracks now available on CD were missing, (Igrayne`s dance, The Wedding...) but on the other hand the Excalibur`s "Theme" and Carl Orff`s "Siege of Camylarde" are much shorter on CD than on vinyl.
Anyhow, great recording, although I would like to see the vinyl one re-issued too.

I am very delighted with this soundtrack. The audio quality is superb; you can even hear some incidental noise,during the actual recording of the film score,on a couple of the tracks. I used to look for this record in used record stores and now am very happy that I own it. Thank you.

Very glad I finally purchased this soundtrack from the mysterious Dandalf. Odd now, how I find the Wagner and Orff utterly boring, probably since I've studied these composers forwards and backwards since first seeing this film as a lad.

But it's Trevor Jones' cues that are the real reason one should get this disc; mystical and dark, shimmering and brooding, gloriously authentic Medieval tunes that bring back images from the film moreso than the bleeding chunks of Wagner and the over-used O Fortuna. My only, only complaint is about the spine-chillingly beautiful chant for Arthur and Gweneviere's wedding - it is far too short and actually badly edited, one can hear the cut from the beginning of the scene to the very last bars. It's one of the better pieces in Jones' score and I'm sorry that it has been truncated to a little over a minute. This scene in the film is a good three or four minutes long.

Regardless, it's well worth the purchase. The disc looks and sounds great. I can hardly believe I really own it now. Dandalf has done us all, Trevor Jones included, a fine service providing this score.

Basil's Conan- Pound for pound is better in my opinion. Sellers right now 9/20/13 want Hundreds for this disc. Woa! Theres a bunch of different places to get O Fortuna cheaper than that. Hey the rest of it is good too, but it is worth no more that $20-$25.

I have looked for over 20 years for an Excalibur soundtrack. This product is exceptional. The music is straight from the movie, and hauntingly beautiful. The CD itself and packaging is very professional.

I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is a fan of Excalibur and love this type of music.
