Song of the Day #2101

Song of the Day: Ben-Hur (“Entr’ Acte”) [YouTube link], composed by Miklos Rozsa, opens the second act of this spectacular 1959 film epic, which won 11 Oscars, a record tied by “Titanic” (1997) and “The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King” (2003), but never surpassed. This cue features some of the most triumphant themes from one of the greatest symphonic film scores ever written. There’s also a live orchestral rendition that Rozsa originally wrote [YouTube link]. As is typical on this day, my birthday, I feature music from my all-time favorite film.
