This is such a complex undertaking, it's curious to me how it played in a small-screen series, albeit a classic one. (William) Patrick Gowers has created an astonishing score that would have had Sibelius and Elgar chuckling before dropping their pipes in awe. Please buy this: It's really good! John Kurlander draws a lovely sound which you don't necessarily expect with early digital recordings (1987). And the big guns don't stop there: Kenneth Sillitoe, St. Paul's Cathederal Choir, The Wren Orchestra Of London and the Gabrieli string quartet if you need more persuading! Unlike some other soundtrack recordings, this stands as a listen-through album, a 'violin concerto' of wide variety working on many levels. Marvelous, and, like Holmes, how terribly British that I could only get it through one of Amazon's American suppliers.
