A rousing collection of film and television music by a master of the genre who conducts the London Symphony in this 70-minute  superbly-recorded program.   Featured  are Star Trek: The Motion Picture, The Boys from Brazil and Twilight Zone: The Movie. The only debit is that the medleys aren't individually banded; it would be convenient to be able to access a desired section.  The LSO is at its best under the composer's baton.  For whatever reason, this is 5 channel instead of Telarc's usual 5.1

Three of Jerry Goldsmith's major "serious" works, the major one Christus Apollo based on a text by Ray Bradbury, with mezzo-soprano, chorus, narrator (Anthony Hopkins) and full orchestra.  Two shorter works fill out the disk: Music for Orchestra, dating from 1970, was written for the St. Louis, and Fireworks, composed in 1999.  Typically fine Telarc multi-channel sound in this recording made in September 2000,  although it is 5 instead of 5.1 channel.  REVIEW
