Album Review

Jerome Moross' music for Otto Preminger's The Cardinal is represented somewhat unevenly on this very short soundtrack album. The composer is at his best when he is writing the impassioned, deeply lyrical and moving passages depicting the internal life of the movie's subject, a Catholic clergyman whose career route to the College of Cardinals is traced — he is much less effective writing source and period "effect" music. It's not a bad soundtrack album as such releases go for this period, but also not special enough as a complete body of work to recommend it to anyone but serious fans of the composer or the subject of the movie.


Born: August 01, 1913 in Brooklyn, NY

Genre: Soundtrack

Years Active: '30s, '40s, '50s, '60s, '70s

Jerome Moross was one of those composers who, despite some notable success, was cursed by anonymity before the public for much of his career. He wrote at least two of the most well-known pieces of film music associated with Western subjects ever to come out of Hollywood -- the music for William Wyler's The Big Country (1958) and the main theme from the long-running series Wagon Train, which is still instantly recognizable 40 years after the show left the air -- yet few outside of the "the business"...
