Pride and Prejudice
The musical | Songs on the CD | Buy the CD
Bernard J. Taylor's Pride and Prejudice - based on the classic novel by Jane Austen - features Peter Karrie, Claire Moore, Gay Soper, Janet Mooney, Christopher Biggens and James Staddon on the studio recording. 23 tracks. 63 minutes. 

"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

"Bernard J. Taylor ...  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." Terry Wardrope, Words and Music

"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
