Maurice Jarre's Pope Joan
20-Aug-2009 - Harkit Records comes with the premiere release of Pope Joan. It's about a legend, that persists that in the 9th Century a woman sat on Throne of Rome. The legend has been told many times, and this dramatization from director Michael Anderson vividly conveys the superstitions that prevailed at that time. There can be no more fitting tribute to the film music composition talents of the late Maurice Jarre than this beautifully conceived score for this 1972 film. The film has a truly glittering cast with Liv Ullman in the title role, co-starring with Trevor Howard, Maximillian Schell, Olivia De Havilland and Franco Nero. Now re-released in a restored theatrical version as originally intended by director, Michael Anderson, the music, issued by Harkit for has been a true labour of love. Well over two years in preparation, the end result is a magnificent package replete with previously unseen on-set photos and magnificent notes by Randall Larson as well as an appreciation of Monsieur Jarre by James Fitzpatrick.
The score is available from, Amazon UK and Harkit Records.
