AllMusic Review by

Alfred Newman's classic score for Henry King's award-winning Song of Bernadette contributed to his reputation as a great composer. Newman received 44 Oscar nominations and nine Academy Awards for his work, and Bernadette's sweeping scope and emotional pull reveals why. His music for the movie mirrors the themes of religious faith and spiritual healing found in the film's version of St. Bernadette's life. As a tribute to Newman, Song of Bernadette makes its debut on CD with this double-disc set. A groundbreaking work in the field of soundtracks, Song of Bernadette is a must for film buffs and fans of expressive, evocative music.
