Crispin Merrell Music CD Announced

14th July 2009

Crispin Merrell  scored the animated series Lavendar Castle, one of three Gerry Anderson series he has worked on to date

The first commercial CD release of composer Crispin Merrell's TV and film music has been announced. "The Best of Crispin Merrell" (working title) will feature Merrell's scores for three Anderson series - Space Precinct, Lavender Castle and New Captain Scarlet, plus the 1995 film "Death Machine". Other diverse pieces include a beautiful piano solo, and a specially commissioned homage to the men who died in the trenches of World War 1.

The disc will showcase Merrell's superb talent, both as a composer and musician, and contain the composer's personal notes for each track, along with accompanying descriptive track notes.

The CD will be available through the FAB Gear website this autumn, with ordering details and links to samples on Merrell's own website available closer to the release date.

The project is being overseen by Ralph Titterton, who is well known among Gerry Anderson fans for his work in restoring and re-releasing the Barry Gray archive. More details will appear soon in FAB 63, which will be mailed to all FAB members later this month.
