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