Music from
The Granada TV series

Music Composed and Conducted by
Patrick Gowers

The Granada TV series of SHERLOCK HOLMES starring Jeremy Brett as Sherlock was one of the most successful series ever produced by Granada TV. The series is still being shown all over the world and the music from it is only available on this CD.

Patrick Gowers, the composer for the entire series adapted and expended his themes from THE SIGN OF FOUR, THE ADVENTURES OF SHERLOCK HOLMES and THE RETURN OF SHERLOCK HOLMES to comprise the tracks featured on this CD.

He conducted The Wren Orchestra, The Gabrieli String Quartet and The St.Paul's Cathedral Choir specially for the recording which was made at The Abbey Road Studios in Digital.

The music is very evocative of the Sherlock Holmes series and should appeal to the thousands of fans of the TV series as well as fans of Sherlock Holmes.

One of the nicest things about Patrick Gowers' superb soudtracks for Granada's SHERLOCK HOLMES television series is its subtle sense of humor. There are any number of musical jokes scattered throughout this recording,clever commentary on the action taking place on screen. My favorite is the echo of "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" in the soundtrack of THE SECOND STAIN, though you will hear echoes of Elgar in the ILLUSTRIOUS LORD BELLINGER, and a trace of Gustav Mahler in the famous opening theme. This record contains some of the best soundtracks ever recorded for a television show or motion picture. The DEATH OF SHERLOCK HOLMES track is a brilliant and moving piece of music that works just as well when divorced from the visuals. I am delighted to see that this hard-to-find record is back in print and can recommend it to all who love Sherlock Holmes or good film music.
