Roman March - Miklos Rozsa* - Ben-Hur (Original Soundtrack Recording) (Vinyl, LP)

Death of Messala Messala, who used every means to wrest the victory from Ben-Hur, is mortally wounded as his chariot overturns and he is dragged along in the dust. Memories Ben-Hur meets Esther, whom he has not seen since his return to Judea, and they recall with nostalgia the happier days when they first met.

The music underlines the deep human emotions of this touching scene and LP) gently as Esther leads the mother from the dark cave of the lepers into the light of the outside world.

Golgotha The stark, silent vista of Golgotha reveals the crosses of the Christ and the two thieves. Below the condemned, the Roman executioners are impassively waiting for those on the crosses to die. We hear the transfigured theme of the Christ and the music ends contemplatively as Ben-Hur, deeply moved, becomes a believer in Christ.

This is a selection of 17 tracks LP) from the 2 cd Rhino release, the sound quality marches the Rhino and as a substitute for that hard to obtain album it isn't bad. My biggest gripe is that the Prelude is faded out before the Roman March that is attached to the Prelude in the Rhino, I guess they couldn't fit the full track onto the cd, so instead they faded it out, shame, it's a brilliant march.

If you can't find the Rhino set this is a good substitute, but I wish that Amazon would sort out the links to the mp3 tracks so that they properly reflect what's on the cd. Bought it for a friend she loves it. One person found this helpful. This was exactly as ordered. I remember watching this movie as a young teen when it first came to theaters. The soundtrack was among the first to capture my attention and I bought the LP when it became available.
