From the Manufacturer

A Man Called Peter is the story of preacher Peter Marshall, who was the Chaplain of the United States senate as well as being pastor of the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church in Washington, DC. Based on the biography by his widow, Catherine Marshall, Henry Koster directed an excellent cast, including the fine British actor Richard Todd (Stage Fright, The Dam Busters, and The Hasty Heart, for which he received an Academy Award nomination as Best Actor), Jean Peters (Captain from Castile, Viva Zapata, Pickup on South Street, Broken Lance) as Catherine Wood Marshall, and also in the cast were Jill Esmond, Les Tremayne, and young Billy Chapin. And to write score, the head of the Fox music department, Alfred Newman, who'd worked with Koster on the religious epic, The Robe.

Alfred Newman's score is a beauty. No other composer did this kind of film as well as Newman and he did many films with religious themes. It is emotional and passionate and filled with memorable music. You can always tell a Newman score within the first twenty seconds of hearing it the extraordinary writing for strings, the harmonies and colors he was simply unique and one of the greatest of all film composers, and his long and amazing career at Fox is really unparalleled. Add to that the brilliant work of his co-conspirators, orchestrator Edward B. Powell and vocal supervisor, the great Ken Darby, and you have film music magic.

The soundtrack for A Man Called Peter was previously released on CD by Film Score Monthly. The presentation there included all the source music presented within the score itself, as it appeared in the film. For this release, Mike Matessino decided to present Newman's score by itself, and hearing it that way is extremely powerful and a great listening experience. All of the source music is included here, after the Newman program. The sound has been considerably cleaned up a bit of wow and flutter still remains, but it's minor now and the Newman score sounds fantastic in that classic Fox stereo.
