Miklos Rozsa's Oscar winning score has now been released, almost complete,on this 2 disc set. It does lack one item, on disc 1, the fanfare music heralding Messala's arrival into Jerusalem is missing. The last DVD release with the "music only" of course, has the missing piece.This is the only fault with this fabulous release and unless a potential buyer is expecting to hear this item,like a purist,this part of the review is aimed at them.But as to the rest of the release, it is superb. If this is your sort of musical heaven then you could't do any better than getting yourself a copy. It comes with an elaborate full-color booklet, and the score on 2 discs in beautiful stereo, along with tons of outakes not used in the movie itself and well worth the investment. Personally, I'm waiting for the dvd (done properly) of Sodom and Gomorrah to get a release, hopefully on Blu-Ray with extras would be nice.

I always loved the music but somehow on the previus simple albums there was not all of it. But this exclusive set offers the priviledge to listen to every tiny bit of music appearing in the movie. And that's just awesome. Makes me want to watch the movie right away.

Miklos Rozsa is great, & it took a long time to get this complete album out. What else can I say between this & the other 5-star reviewer? One of the best movie scores ever.

This is a great soundtrack, probably one of my most favorite!! The orchestra was a major integral part of this movie. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves this movie. I use this as background music while I read or work.

Excellent soundtrack. Ben Hur has been my favorite movie & soundtrack since I was a little girl when I was introduced to it by my Dad. We laid on the carpet on the living room floor and enjoyed together. Wonderful memories. That was 50 years ago! I love you Dad!

With all the interpreted soundtracks on the market occasionally you come across not only a great classic but you actually (although it seems rarely) get the bonus of the actual conductor and actual musical score used in the movie on the CD. This Ben Hur release is a example of the extraordinary talents of the incomparable composers during the golden age of Hollywood epics. Every track conducted by Mr. Rozsa is reminiscent of greatness of the film and his iconic score (not like today's mindless whatever ...my opinion of course). To me that's what makes it a great soundtrack/score. Earlier I purchased another Ben Hur CD with a similar cover but in yellow instead of this version. That CD set is a woefully underachievement compared to this release. I am so happy I found this and it is simply outstanding in every aspect. I recently purchased the scores from The Big Country, Shane, and Patton. from Amazon and gladly put them in this same category.

Thank you for your reviews b/c I would have gotten the cheaper one, when all I really wanted was the music from the chariot race.Reading the reviews I found the cheaper one did not have what I needed. THANKS!
