Notes & Reviews:

Stellar performance of this comprehensive representation of Walton's great film score, including noted Shakespearean actor Christopher Plummer who imparts presence and authority as speaker Available for the first time at Classics price, in brand new contemporary packaging Chandos' recordings of Walton's landmark scores for Olivier's Shakespeare films are re-issued at Classics price. Olivier starred and directed Henry V, on film, which begins as a recreation of stage production at the Globe Theatre then gradually turns into a stylized cinematic rendition of the play with sets reminiscent of the medieval Book of Hours.

Hi-Fi News
Chandos's stunning sound captures with unflinching ease the rousing spectacle of the battle music at full tilt. In all, another winner of a CD in what's turning out to be a most distinguished series
