    Omen II got a reaction from SteveMc in The Classical Music Recommendation Thread   
    English composer Gerald Finzi wrote some lovely music, for example his incidental music for a BBC radio production of Love's Labour's Lost in 1946.  The ten-movement suite is well worth a listen, the highlights for me being the Introduction, Nocturne [from about 6:20] and Dance [from about 12:10].  I am going to see this later in the week and I am really looking forward to it.

    Omen II got a reaction from Once in Intrada Releases MONSIGNOR Expanded Edition   
    I received this yesterday and mighty fine it is too!  The Vatican is a nice little cue not previously available.
     
    I like that Intrada also included the list of musicians who played on the score.  The previous release did not and it would be great if all soundtrack releases included a roster of musicians.  Four of the musicians who played on the score are still with the London Symphony Orchestra to this day - violinist Colin Renwick, cellists Noel Bradshaw and Jennifer Brown as well as Patrick Laurence on double bass.

    There’s some speculation over at FSM that they may have found Bernstein’s Hallelujah Trail.
     
    I could think of a few others, Laurence Of Arabia, Mysterious Island, In Harm’s Way (again), It’s A Mad Mad Mad Mad World or Zulu.
     
    granted several of those composers weren’t on Roger’s list of artists the had upcoming titles coming from he posted earlier this year but things change.

    Omen II got a reaction from Remco in Do you think John Williams' symphony will ever be released?   
    I'll try!  Libby at the LSO has very kindly taken the time to furnish me with some fascinating information about the performance of John Williams's symphony from the LSO archives.  Firstly a slight correction to @Harald's post in that the Nottingham performance was actually the day before the London concert and was therefore the first UK performance of the symphony in its extensively revised version.  The London concert took place at the Royal Festival Hall the following day on Sunday 9th July 1972 at 7:30 p.m.  The programme was as follows:
     
    Ralph Vaughan Williams - The Wasps: Overture
    Jean Sibelius - Violin Concerto (soloist: Kyung Wha Chung)
     
    Interval
     
    John T. Williams - Symphony No. 1 (first performance in London)
    Allegro
    Andante sostenuto
    Maestoso : Allegro : Risoluto
    Manuel de Falla - Three-Cornered Hat: Dances
     
    The programme notes were written by music critic Denby Richards (father of the actor Gavin Richards who played Captain Bertorelli in 'Allo 'Allo ).  Here is an extract of the most relevant parts of the programme notes:

    Do we have a general thread for these kind of things?

    I still don't believe we'll get to see or hear the symphony in any foreseeable future, but between Harald and Omen's posts, we certainly know a fair bit more about it. Thanks for sharing, guys!

    Omen II got a reaction from Jurassic Shark in Do you own an album by John Williams the guitarist?   
    I believe he composed the music for the Lee Remick film Emma's War (1987), the score for which I have occasionally seen listed incorrectly in filmographies for 'our' John Williams.  I saw the opening of the film once and the music credit says something like Music composed & played by guitarist John Williams.
     
    EDIT:  I hadn't remembered that Doug Willis off of Neighbours was in it.
