Max Steiner: The Miracle of Our lady of Fatima
Protege of Gustav Mahler, student of Ricard Strauss, beloved composer of film scores, Max Steiner.
In 1952 he was commissioned by Warner Brothers to provide the music score to their film THE MIRACLE OF OUR LADY OF FATIMA, a simplified but still moving cinematic rendering of the events in Fatima, Portugal a century ago.
A sampling of his lovely score, the Miracle of the Sun sequence, taken from acetate recordings of the original soundtrack.
