Music for Monday: Lawrence of Arabia

Music for Monday

It’s the solstice today, and in honour of the longest day of the year in the southern hemisphere lets celebrate with a reminder of the fiery heat of the desert sun. Maurice Jarre’s soundtrack to the epic film Lawrence of Arabia is a classic and instantly recognisable to most. The  music creates a captivating anticipation, heralding the first glimmer of gold above the horizon and the beginning of a new day, the searing heat of the desert almost oozing out of the screen to bring sweat to your own brow.  Welcome the Sun once more on this important turning point on the calendar.
