When my not so subtle hints around Christmas time failed to produce a copy of this CD in my stocking I took matters into my own hand and purchased it. I love great film music and this ranks as one of the most beautifully done that I have ever heard. Jenny states in her CD notes that she often close to Lord while preparing this album. Well the listener will have the same experience. Jenny is a true master of the violin and Kurt Bestor (who has arranged many of the pieces) is also a marvel! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
