Format: Audio CD
A superb collection of music from the films of David Puttnam. Newly recorded with sumptuous orchestral and choral sound,also featuring some astutely chosen solo piano tracks sensitively played by Puttnam's son, Sacha. It was both a timely reminder and revelation that the music featured in Puttnam's films is invariably a key component, chosen with a master craftsman's care. . My standout tracks are Vangelis Chariots of Fire, particularly.,(the beautiful Eric's Theme ), Mark Knopfler's haunting Going Home from Local Hero ,Morricone's Theme from The Mission, Morderer's idnight Express and so many more. A cherishable album.

Wow !! I was listening to this in the car and visualising all my favourite British Films from the heyday of Goldcrest; mainly from the early to the mid eighties. Puttnam has managed to keep the authenticity of the the original compositions, whilst giving them a new twist. The songs bust with orchestral fervour.

Cracking album for the car and for relaxing at home to.

One of the most lovely, sensitive albums I have ever bought. I couldn't recommend it more highly. I have it wafting through my home all day and know many of my friends love listening to the gentle melodies in their car. Fantastic. Played and Produced with consummate care and love.

A very enjoyable record but I find some of the individual pieces rather short. I would also have liked rather more guitar in certain melodies.

I heard Jonathan Agnew discussing this with Lord Puttnam so I bought it and it is even better than I hoped. Beautiful.
