"Hail Dogbelle!"

Thanks for the reminder. Quo Vadis? is only available to me on a cassette recording from what I believe was a phase 4 recording done years ago. I'm in need of updating.

It sounds familiar, DB. I think the source is probably the same. It always knocked me out how clear that sound is - not just that track, but the whole album. The burning of Rome is stupendous!

The four different iterations of the "Aftermath" cue from Ben-Hur (available on the FSM label) are Rozsa at his finest.

What's the best way to experience QUO VADIS in a single recording?

Mind your head, BOAJ. Such is the stuff of which 'Score Wars' are made of big grin



This is the programme I think Dogbelle is in possession of and it's the track list I have on cassette. I've always found it to be a very pleasant listen, however, it's a grand score and opening it up wouldn't hurt a bit with the likes of this



I've never heard this version at all, so over to anyone else who has.

You did well to find it inexpensively DB. On Amazon UK the track list is not mentioned for that particular recording.

Or search for a used copy of the Vocalion issue, which includes Ben-Hur as well (originally at a 2-for 1 price).

It's supposed to be an "abstract" interpretation of the music, but isn't it difficult to refrain from interpretation? The film has put certain images into our minds, and they cannot be discarded easily. Am I alone in sensing a parallel between the rising images at the start and the camera's upward movement from dungeon to Vatican Hill? The image that emerges after the sphere certainly suggests the cross of Peter's crucifixion -- until it turns into something more like a spinning top. Of course you can't pursue this sort of thing too far.

I keep waiting for William McCrum to wrap his Jungian mind around this one.

The crosslike apparition does conjure up images of Peter on the cross. The moment is given emphasis because the roman soldier, on hearing Peter's admission of being given the same honour as his lord and master, accords him an upside-down crucifixion. It's just that the music of this actual moment from the film preceeds the cross-like device. There's a whole lot going on in that music as related to the film.
