AllMusic Review by

Possibly the best score written for any English picture since the '40s heyday of Vaughan Williams and William Walton's film work -- Richard Rodney Bennett composed a haunting, melodic yet atonal score for this 1967 movie, built on English folk melodies, that lingers long in the listener's memory. James Galway's flute playing is a bonus.
