Finally after all these years we get an official release of Bill Conti's beautiful and emotionally charged score from Quartet Records.
The release comes with a beautiful cover and a lavish and informative 20-page booklet sporting detailed liner notes by Daniel Schweiger as well as lots of stills.
Interestingly the Main Titles feature a different string arrangement than the film version (starting at 4:00). But the film arrangement is included at the end of "It's All Right Malachi / Malachi's Murder" (5:28).
It's great that this Bill Conti score finally gets some attention. I noticed some music in the film which I didn't hear on the CD, but it sounds great nevertheless.
For anyone interested in a strictly chronological track order, this would be it:

1. Main Titles (different string arrangement, film arrangement at the end of track 8)
2. The Raid
3. Graveside Hit
4. Martin Waits / Martin's Confession / Billy & Jenny
5. Malachi's Meeting
6. Martin Meets Anna / Meehan the Malevolent
7. Trashing the Church / Da Costa's Agony / Message for Martin
8. It's All Right Malachi (track 8, 0:00 - 1:41)
9. Martin & Anna
10. Billy Goes Away
11. Malachi's Murder (track 8, 1:41 - 2:35)
12. Meehan at Church
13. Meehan Gets Anna / The Boat
14. Martin & Meehan / Martin on the Cross
15. End Credits

Just finished listening to this. What a wonderful score. I believe that the End Credits selection may be one of the loveliest ever.

Possibly my favourite Bill Conti score.
Just brilliant from start to finish.
I have both editions of the score (the old boot and the Quartet legit release) and it's another PREDATOR where the boot sounds better than the legit release to my ears.

I too thought that the Concorde edition sounded better.

Oh boy, I have the Quartet only - a wee bit jealous Graham and Kev.
