Here's one I recently discovered composed by 'Genesis' member Tony Banks...a real "hidden gem"

I still have the LP record (bought from Cheapo Records for £2.50). I think this was a case of the producers realising that Tony Banks' score was inappropriate for the film so they brought in Christopher Palmer to arrange and orchestrate a rather good symphonic score using Banks' themes as a basis and which was played by the National Philharmonic conducted by Stanley Black.

Fantastic score! The composer finally released the soundtrack on CD himself some years ago. Unfortunately had to use very generic cover art. Clearly didn't have a license to use anything from the film itself.

another of those film scores that few know about. Christopher Palmer was a brilliant arranger orchestrator and composer . His fine work made The Wicked Lady an outstanding achievement . Listen also to Maurice Jarre's Prince and Pauper and you will know what I mean.

If by Jarre's Prince and the Pauper you mean Crossed Swords I agree.

I seem to recall Chris Palmer orchestrating the score for Michael Winner's "Scream for Help," (1984) along with Johnny Pearson which had music by Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones. The score in the film was noteworthy enough but none of the orchestrated score made it onto the soundtrack release as it had in Tony Banks' case. I remember being very disappointed by that.
