Beautiful music for a beautiful film

"I meant to write a review much earlier but did not get around to it until now. The music on this Cd is very beautiful and soothing. It brings to mind the images from the movie Jesus of Nazareth. I like listening to this CD in the evening before going to bed in order to relax. It is very beautiful music, but I wish that it was longer than 40 minutes."
Exceptionally well done music soundtrack that made this grea

"This soundtrack contains beautiful and dramatic music to the best film on Jesus' life to this date. It is not an especially long soundtrack, considering the approximately 6-hour length of the movie, but what music you hear is very well done. The music flows beautifully during the earlier scenes of the movie and then intensifies during the passion scenes. One track includes a very good recording at the beginning of the "Sermon on the Mount", narrated by Robert Powell, who played Jesus in the film. I think if I were producing the score I would have maybe included another spoken recording of the teachings of Jesus as it was presented in the film. Though overall, this is a fine recording, containing healthy and inspiring music."
Relive the Movie through the Music!

"If you love "Jesus of Nazareth" the movie, you will absolutely love this soundtrack.
This has been my favorite movie ever since I first saw it in 1977! Since then I have watched this movie every Easter. Listening to this beautifully performed collection of music helps me relive the movie whenever I listen to it. This music is brilliant, inspirational, and very moving. The music was masterfully woven into every scene of the movie to create the perfect mood throughout the entire film.
I especially enjoyed reading the fold-out insert that included background information on the movie and music. After reading this, I was determined to learn even more about the making of the movie. My curiosity was finally satisfied when I found a copy of "Franco Zeffirelli's Jesus: A Spiritual Diary" by Franco Zeffirelli right here at Amazon! In this book, Zeffirelli takes you with him on his personal journey toward releasing this masterpiece film just in time for Easter 1977. What a treasure for anyone who truly appreciates this movie! I enjoy listening to this wonderful soundtrack CD as I read the book. I highly recommend the soundtrack and the book!"
