Pride and Prejudice

Potted Reviews
Following
are extracts from various reviews

"Pride and Prejudice boasts a plethora of glorious melodies . . . The ravishing ballads that are Taylor's trademark are plentiful, but the score also contains several light and jaunty pieces that serve to create a sweet yet flamboyant mood . . . Pride and Prejudice is pastoral and precious, poignant and pure. In an era when originality is increasingly rare and shows cobbled together from vintage music is in vogue, composers like Bernard J. Taylor must be welcomed and revered."
Mike Gibb, Masquerade, Summer, 1994.

"Bernard J. Taylor has proved to be a considerable talent. With his latest offering, based on the Jane Austen novel, he has returned to the past and fashioned what I consider to be his best work to date. His score, which recreates the mood (and musical style) of the period in which the novel is set, is a feast of lovely melodies, wedded to excellent lyrics. If ever a show deserved a production on the strength of its score, it has to be this one. I look forward to hearing lots more from Mr Taylor."
Terry Wardrope, Words and Music, Autumn, 1994.

"Taylor is a melodist of the old school. He has written a number of appealing songs for his Pride and Prejudice characters, with some that are fittingly amusing." Show Music Magazine, USA, Summer, 1994.

"The score with songs ranging from the light-hearted and humorous to the powerful and moving easily lives up to the standard set by "Wuthering Heights" and previous recordings.
C D, Beneath the Mask, Summer, 1994.
