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.
