My copy arrived here in Wales this morning.

The sound is great but i've only played the start. Look forward to hearing the rest.

It's arrived here in Lancashire as well.

It sounds tremendous and is packaged beautifully.

Wonderful achievement, thanks to all involved in this remarkable release.


Glad you like it.....smile

Oh dear the whole download versus hard drive thing again ...

OK. One more time.

I *LOVE* CDs and am GLAD QUO VADIS is being distributed on CD.

However, to say having the CD paradigm is the safer and more secure way of owning music is just plainly incorrect. Yes, hard drives fail but only a fool would keep a digital library on one hard drive without a backup. If it was "one hard drive" versus "one CD", yes the CD would win, but it's not that. It's "dual/multiple drives" versus "one CD".

The truth is digital has several advantages over CD and these are the reasons why consumers are switching to it:

1. You can have any quality level you want (including better than CD), it's not dictated by the hardware
2. You can have any program length you want (no more truncating scores to get them on one disc)
3. Speed of distribution: you can have it now.
4. Space.
5. The ease with which you can take safety copies to protect against loss.

The failure of hard drives is only an issue if you put all your library on just one and don't back it up. However, there are other causes of loss such as fire, flood and theft. Someone once told me it's paranoic to worry about those risks because it would cost too much to mitigate those risks. Well, in the CD paradigm, yes, that's correct. But, these things happen. One of these happened to me and I lost MY WHOLE COLLECTION. So don't be an arse and tell me these things don't happen. And, whereas it would indeed be a major nightmare to protect against these causes of loss with the CD paradigm, it's cheap and easy in the digital world. So cheap and easy, in fact, that you might as well.

Having spouted all these advantages of digital (again), I will come back to my first point:

I AM OLD-FASHIONED AND I PREFER TO OWN THE CD — it's just I think it is foolish to argue against the advantages af digital and I like to have a digital library as backup.

Cheers

Back on-topic, I'm officially looking forward to receiving my QUO VADIS very much indeed!

Just back from an extended listen, and I've never heard anything like this before, it bears no resemblance to the re-recording that Rozsa himself did, just listen to the Triumphal March (track 7 disc one) never have I heard it played like this, it's rapidly becoming my favourite Rozsa march, the Main Title is so fast, it's a revelation.

You've really outdone yourselves this time, James and co.

Glad you were referring to the Rozsa Decca recording and not the OST ? wink

And of course with the march we did both the film orchestration...NO strings but lots of ww, multiple brass and perc...and the suite version for full tutti orchestra

Also, CDs can go bad. Accidents happen. I just a couple days ago had to rebuy a couple CDs that won't play correctly even after resurfacing. Yes HDs can go bad but even just having everything backed up onto another drive makes the likelihood of loss incredibly minimal.

(And I much prefer CDs too, as well)

" QUO VADIS " should be included on any list of Masterpiece film scores. As witnessed on this extraordinary Tadlow recording, it is confirmed that Miklos Rozsa was one of the great composers of this century. By any standards this recording of Rozsa's masterwork requires all the applause that will be given to this superb endeavor. Plaudits to everyone involved in this project, and to Dr Rozsa for giving us his genius.

I agree. The Decca Rozsa recording sounds almost like a different score. I don't think I ever truly realized the brilliance of "Quo Vadis" till I heard this Tadlow.

I'd love both JUNGLE BOOK, THIEF OF BAGHDAD, THAT HAMILTON WOMAN (see if you can find music that was deleted, or never used, for this when it was a roadshow known as LADY HAMILTON), THE MACOMBER AFFAIR, and A WOMAN'S VENGEANCE.

All of the above are magnificent scores.

No interest in either Jungle Book 9 we have the originals) or Thief of Baghdad as I have two CDS worth lifted from the dvd music and effects tracks.

Vital Rozsa - That Hamilton Woman, Five graves to cairo, ADouble Life, The Macomber Affair.

A DOUBLE LIFE or SODOM & GOMORRAH! That is, if you're not interested in doing a compilation of Rozsa's film noir work.
