Scott of the Antarctic, Sheet music Book


The film 'Scott of the Antarctic' was produced by Ealing Studios and released in 1948.

It recounts Robert Falcon Scott's ill-fated second expedition to the Antarctic in 1910-1913.

The film is well-known for its score, composed by Vaughan Williams, which was later reworked to create his Sinfonia Antartica.

Vaughan Williams's original score for the film was heavily edited in the studio and halved in length in order to create the final edit.

It is now presentedin its full, unedited form, assembled by the conductor Martin Yates, allowing listeners to hear the full grandeur of the composer's original for the first time.

A recording of the work is available on the Dutton Epoch record label.
