We were at Faber Music Ltd last night for the launch of a new book about the life and career of Carl Davis.  Carl composed the wonderful score for Ethel and Ernest, which is available through Decca records. There is a section in the book about writing the score for the film.

“Published to mark his 80th birthday, Carl Davis: Maestro by Wendy Thompson offers a unique glimpse into the life and work of this consummate all-round musician, documenting his immense impact on the many spheres of music-making he has inhabited. Davis’s fascinating life story gives an insight into the prolific composing and conducting career of one of the world’s most celebrated film and television composers.”
