The King’s Guard is a period swashbuckling adventure starring Lesley-Anne Down, Ron Perlman, Eric Roberts and Ashley Jones. Set in 16th century England, the film features elaborate swordfights and major battle scenes. It contains many familiar elements: a beautiful princess fleeing from a castle under attack, a chest laden with a dowry of gold and jewels, evil brigands in the forest, a handsome sergeant of the King’s Guard to the rescue, a nobleman sacrificing himself to save his compatriots, etc. Lots of fun with a small orchestra, much-enhanced. There are more swashes here than you could throw a buckle at (over 73 minutes of music).


This CD was released on Citadel Records in June of 2000 (Citadel STC 77129).
