Limited repress of 500 copies. This is the first time this beguiling film music from 1971 has ever been released. Directed by Piers Haggard in 1971, this film has slowly gathered a cult following for lots of reason, it's beautifully shot and art directed - it's difficult to find a better representation of 18th century rural britain. It stars the devil, evil naked maidens, and of course the music accompanying all the horror is quite extraordinary. Written by Marc Wilkinson, former director of music for the national theatre, this cult score takes its lead from 'The Devil's Interval'. Musical appearances from the Ondes Martenot (the earliest electronic instrument) and cimbalom add to the overall spookiness of this recording. And in 50 years the music has lost none of its depth or addictive, evil hooks.
