For speaker, SATB choir, boys' choir, and orchestra Olivier's Henry V was one of Walton's most celebrated film scores. Christopher Palmer's imaginative reconstruction turned it into a dramatic scenario which has been scrupulously edited, and is presented here with a full set of textual notes, including introduction, synopsis, notes on the sources and text, and facsimiles. Orchestral material is available on hire from the publisher.
