Barry T Lyr Req: The Grenadier and the Lady (11) RE: Lyr Req: The Grenadier and the Lady 07 May 08


Anyone who likes this tune is well-advised to find a copy of Trevor Jones' limited edition CD of the soundtrack for the British film comedy 'Three and Out'.

(There are actually two CDs being released, one by the promotion company that includes guest pop singers and the like, and the other by Trevor Jones, consisting of the original movie score.)

The melody to 'The Grenadier and the Lady' threads its way through no less than eight of the sixteen tracks. I am amazed by Trevor's arranging, for he morphs the tune through a variety of styles, moods, tempos and time signatures... everything from mournful violin slow air to up tempo jig.

I myself am proud as can be that a verse and chorus of my lyrical adaptation, An Emigrant's Daughter, is sung in the movie by Imelda Staunton.

I understand that the movie has met with mixed reaction, but the soundtrack appears to be receiving consistently positive reviews. For what it's worth, I give Trevor two musical thumbs up on this effort!
