Bernard Herrmann made some significant recordings for Decca in the late-1960s/early-1970s.  Many of these used the company`s then new audio technology, Phase 4, which brought the music into brilliant light. This collection brings together a selection of British Film Music as well as music by Herrmann himself for a series of Alfred Hitchcock films, including `Psycho`, `Marnie` and `Vertigo` (originally released under the title `Hitchcock Movie Thrillers`). It also includes a selection from Shostakovich`s dark score for Shakespeare`s `Hamlet`.
