The Lion in the Last Valley of Scots and Marian

As some of you may already have noticed, I have posted the cover art and updated the composer compilations section or my mix list to reflect my newest project, which is now complete. I was trying to come up with a wittier title than John Barry Scores the Middle Ages, but found that none of the track titles lent themselves well to being an all-encompassing album title, and perusing the movies themselves for quotes didn't really work out either (surprising, considering how fertile The Lion In Winter would seem). However, the music is the thing, so it's just plain old John Barry Scores the Middle Ages, featuring music from the Silva recordings of The Lion In Winter; Mary, Queen of Scots, The Last Valley and Robin and Marian.

At least Mr. Barry won't find out about the project file name "Middle Aged Barry." Or the typo that yielded "John Barry Scores In the Middle Ages."

There will be a follow-up compilation called Jerry Goldsmith Scores the Middle Ages which will consist of music from Lionheart, First Knight, The Thirteenth Warrior and Timeline (his score for the European/director's cut version of Legend won't be included as it is more fantasy than medieval).


Because it came up in conversation earlier today (Facebook readers will get a link):

Do you get distracted easily? Huh? What did you say?

Was this the best year of your life? No one year as a whole is better than the others, although there were some that were worse (1998 springs to mind).

Who are your best friends? A few people, they know who they are.

Is it easier to forgive or forget? I rarely forget things, but I can and do forgive.

Have you ever changed clothes in a vehicle? Yes, and I'm not a big fan,
