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.

About William Walton Edition

In March 2014 Oxford University Press published the last volume in its magnificent William Walton Edition, the only complete critical edition of a 20th-century British composer's oeuvre. All 24 volumes are handsomely printed and bound. Walton's entire output is now available to scholars and performers in a definitive and fully practical edition, based on the form in which the composer ultimately wished his music to be performed. The general editor, David Lloyd-Jones - the eminent conductor, English music specialist, and founder of Opera North - invited a world-class expert to edit each volume. Carefully researched introductory essays place the works in their historical context and in the composer's oeuvre, and there are full critical notes.
