I don't know if the score of the movie The Message was ever released at all... if not, it's been a long time coming. This release comes in 2 CDs and includes soundtracks of "The Message" and "The Lion of the Desert", both movies produced and directed by the late Mustapha Akkad.
If you've enjoyed Lawrence of Arabia you will fall in love with the sound track of The Message. Beautiful, magical, and an unappreciated master piece by Maurice Jarre. Where he get his inspiration from is beyond me but the score for The Message is so powerful it's practically embedded in the middle eastern mind set. Used over and over in the middle eastern world it's become the sound track for many, many Islamic TV shows, soap operas and dramas. Thus is the affect the movie, and spefically the sound track itself, has had on generation after generation of Arabs.
You will enjoy this CD (both soundtracks) if you have any interest in middle eastern culture or naustalia towards the movies. Highly recommended.
