Product Overview

Based on Colleen McCullough's best-selling novel, this romantic saga spans fifty years and three generations. Winner of 5 Emmy Awards, The Thorn Birds features a star-studded cast. Even after 20 years it remains the second highest-rated miniseries in television history.

In the rugged Australian Outback, three generations of Clearys live through joy sadness, bitter defeat and magnificent triumph--driven by their dreams, sustained by remarkable strength of character... and torn by dark passions, violence and a scandalous family legacy of forbidden love. Richard Chamberlain played the tortured priest Ralph de Bricassart and Rachel Ward was Meggie Clearly, the girl whose heart he broke, time and time again.

In addition to its own legendary status, The Thorn Birds featured what is inarguably one of the greatest and most-loved scores ever penned by the incomparable Henry Mancini. Amazingly, despite the extraordinary success of the mini-series, Mancini's fame and a huge public outcry for the music's release, no soundtrack album was ever forthcoming. Finally, in honor of what would have been Henry Mancini's 80th birthday (April 16, 2004), and to coincide with the US Postal Service's issue of a Henry Mancini stamp, we are thrilled to offer this spectacular score as a deluxe 2 CD set. Featuring the enormously famous themes from the 10-hour production, this is classic romance at its finest. As a score every bit as beautiful, romantic and famous as Somewhere In Time, Out of Africa or Doctor Zhivago, the release of The Thorn Birds is a major recording event not to be missed by anyone who saw the miniseries, still remembers Mancini's enchanting melodies or simply loves beautiful music. Further raising current awareness of the television classic, The Thorn Birds has also just made its DVD debut to a vast and awaiting fan base.

At long last, this Mancini masterpiece comes to CD as a lavish two disc set!

Album Notes and Credits
Original score composed by Henry Mancini.
Composer: Henry Mancini.
For reasons unknown, it took over two decades for Henry Mancini's score for the smash 1983 television miniseries The Thorn Birds to earn an official soundtrack release, but Var?se Sarabande's lavish two-disc release proves worth the wait. Nor has time dimmed The Thorn Birds' power -- this deeply romantic, intimate score remains one of Mancini's most stirring, rivaling the composer's most legendary big-screen efforts. Mancini eschews epic drama in favor of smaller-scale nuance, evoking the doomed romance of novelist Colleen McCullough's tale in finely honed strokes. The music is elegant yet understated, rich in variety but amounting to something far greater than the sum of its disparate elements. ~ Jason Ankeny
