Quartet Records Announces:

Expanded Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS
Music Composed and Conducted by JOHN BARRY

Limited edition: 3000 units

Quartet Records, Universal Pictures, Geffen Records and Universal Music Enterprises present an expanded and remastered edition of a timeless John Barry classic score for a 1971 Universal film, MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS, directed by Charles Jarrot and starring Vanessa Redgrave, Glenda Jackson, Patrick MacGoohan, Timothy Dalton and Trevor Howard.

Dignified and regal, romantic and bittersweet, John Barry’s music for MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS evokes the period, enhances the atmosphere and underlines the emotions. It is one of Barry’s undisputed masterpieces and was Oscar-nominated for Best Original Score in 1971.

Decca Records issued an album coinciding with the film’s release, beautifully produced by the composer. But while the album contained most of the score’s highlights, it ran just 28 minutes, or a little more than half of what Barry had recorded at London’s CTS studio. This CD marks the first release of the entire score, thanks to the recent discovery of previously unknown tape rolls in the Universal vaults. We have included the remastered original Decca album in stereo and the score presentation in mono, as it has survived.

This collection has been produced by Neil S. Bulk and Mike Matessino, and mastered by Chris Malone. The package includes a 20-page booklet with an in-depth essay by film music historian and John Barry authority Jon Burlingame.

Great release smile

I have the old Intrada CD of the album & it really sounds fantastic. I think it sold out quite fast, & I wondered why it had never been reissued, & here it is...along with the full score!

Very happy am I.

Two please!

Glenda Jackson's singing sounded terrible to me. But that won't stop me from getting this cd.

Unsurprisingly, this is my release of the year.

One of the best scores, written by one of the best composers, during one of his best writing periods.

Cheers

Think I'll purchase it though all the same. Merry Christmas Quartet and all Barry fans!

Ha, not Glenda Jackson, but Vanessa Redgrave, singing Vivre et Mourir. She really gets her tongue around those French words...I wonder what the French think of it? I think it's quite beautiful & hypnotic.

I’ve yet to see this film or hear the score, but I must admit I initially found Redgrave’s singing a little off-putting when I first heard it in Camelot (where she was replacing Julie Andrews), but over time it’s grown on me, so I hope her singing is good here.

Additionally, I’ve read an Entr’Acte was included on the DVD that did not make it onto the recent Kino Blu-ray and seemingly is not on here. Was that Entr’Acte an original piece or was that a string of cues patched together?

The overture and Entr'Acte were the same piece of music—and it is the LP version of "But Not Through My Realm".

So, we always had it. We just didn't realise at the time that's what it was.

I always wondered why that track on the LP was not the music we heard in the film, and now we know why.

Barry snuck in unused or alternate cues onto his albums like that a couple of times

You might recall the original LP of The Last Valley had some music you don't hear in the film, possibly unused versions of cues, like "Vogel Leaves The Valley".

Another example of where he did this was on the Somewhere In Time LP, where the track called "A Day Together" turned out to actually be the unused original version of the end title.

Cheers

I had a relative who actually enjoyed film scores to some degree. She one time asked about two titles, this was one of them. Sadly at the time I had to inform her the score had not been released.

Years ago she went in to get fluid drained from her lungs. Complications had her in a breathing-assisting machine. Doctors claimed they couldn't do anything and rather than let her die, they were impatient and took her off the machine. She died with her eyes wide open while her mom cried holding her in her arms, gasping for breath. People have survived far worse, but she wasn't given a chance. She'll never get to finally experience this release.

Hey Amer, I still have the LP below. Way back when, my Dad's got the radio on in the kitchen to an easy listening station and this beautiful music is playing that really caught my attention. It was "Mary's Theme." I had to have been in my teens and like all teens wouldn't get near the far right side of the FM band in those days. So I secretly tucked it into the mind's ear for future reference. Same with the name "Barry" or whatever that the announcer mentioned. Don't tell anyone! eek

SIDE 1
1. Mary’s Theme (2:30)
2. Vivre Et Mourir (2:31)
3. But Not Through My Realm (2:30)
4. Journey To Scotland (1:41)
5. Black Night (2:33)
6. Escape With Bothwell (2:15)
SIDE 2
1. Mary’s Theme (1:20)
2. Journey To England (2:25)
