A beautiful later score from the legendary Miklos Rosza – a masterpiece that draws on all of his many years in film, yet serves things up with a more subtle approach than before! There's a sense of space here that we don't always hear in Rosza – almost a pausing between the notes, creating a sense of reflection that really expands the gentle sentiment of the tunes – while still building to a bit of drama at a few key moments. Nothing here is overdone at all – and the soundtrack is a great reminder that in the serious film score world, away from the hits, the mid 70s could be a very golden period! Titles include "Providence", "Sonia Et Le Saint Suaire", "Feuillages", "Poursuite", and "Valse Crepusculaire". LP, Vinyl record album

The key word in describing Rozsa's score is sweeping – with soaring, string heavy arrangements – but it's the intricacies and delicate little textures that make it a classic. Above and beyond so many archetypal soundtracks– Sodom & Gomorrah's sounds are transcendent! LP, Vinyl record album
