Some time after the message that this score has nearly sold out, I picked it up and I have just finished listening to it. What a gorgeous and wonderful score this is. It has an absolutely gorgeous main theme and it's just all around colourful and evocative music and typically Miklós Rózsa. I love it!

I agree

Although SODOM AND GOMORRAH and EL CID are some of my favorites, the mid-1950s yielded the Rozsa music I find most satisfactory. LUST FOR LIFE, MOONFLEET, & VALLEY OF THE KINGS are all 'Top 5' with me, with MOONFLEET being my No.1.

My Rózsa collection and knowledge of his oeuvre is still in its infancy, so I cannot make much of a statement about Moonfleet's position within his vast oeuvre, but comments like this help me to further my knowledge. What I can positively say though is that there is a passion in his music that I really like and Moonfleet has lots of it.

It is nice to see that you put Lust for Life within your top 5, because that one is at the top of my Rózsa wish list.

It`s the only FSM Rozsa release I don`t have. Just listened to the fantastic samples. No idea how I could miss that one. Great score.
