Gould: World War I - Soundtrack to the 1964 CBS Documentary
KHCD-ST004 (STEREO) - Gould: World War I - Soundtrack to the 1964 CBS Documentary - Orchestra and Band conducted by Morton Gould - One feature that placed "World War One" far and above other TV documentaries of the time (1964) was the soundtrack composed by Morton Gould. Each episode opens with the introduction which was equal in dramatic quality to the "Song of the High Seas" from "Victory At Sea" composed by Richard Rodgers (see KHCD-ST003). The rest of the music for the series is dramatic, poignant, and simple. RCA records released a soundtrack album soon after the series was run on its classical LSC-series Red Seal label, and also briefly reissued in the 70s on the budget ANL-series label. This transcription offers this wonderful score again to collectors of soundtracks, and also to those who admire Morton Gould's compositions.
