Composer Patrick Doyle's first film score accompanied Kenneth Branagh's first movie as director. For both, Henry V (1989) is a triumph. Branagh's vision of the play is a far darker, more realistic depiction than the morale-boosting patriotism of Laurence Olivier's 1945 classic. Doyle's score had to follow in the footsteps of William Walton, but undaunted the first-timer rose to the challenge magnificently. Briefed by the director to follow "Shakespeare's golden words" and be "as bold as possible", Doyle produced music of epic scope, lyrical passion and descriptive imagination. The score has a real flavour of opera--a trait that would become familiar in all of this composer's later work--as Doyle underscores the great speeches (notably the St Crispin's Day speech) with a tangible sense of drama, but one that is always sensitive to the nuances of the words. Set-pieces such as the death of Falstaff and the visceral Battle of Agincourt stand out, but the score entire feels operatically through-composed, unified by Doyle's strong instinct for melody. The melodramatic climax of his "Non nobis, Domine" (that's the composer singing at the beginning) unashamedly rivals "Land of Hope and Glory" for--as Branagh puts it--"hummability". Quite how they coaxed Sir Simon Rattle and the CBSO into the studio remains a mystery, but the result is one of the best performed, orchestrally luxurious soundtracks ever recorded. Patrick Doyle's later scores may be more refined (try Hamlet for example), but none quite match the sheer exuberance of this debut. --Mark Walker

The definitive call to arms, Laurence Olivier's Henry V is a patriotic saga awash with pageantry, battles, romance and political chicanery. Intended to rally Britain during the darkest days of World War II, the film shows how the star of England sought to stake an ancestral, royal claim on the soil of France. Olivier once said, famously, that "it isn't until you're older that you can understand the pictorial beauty of heroism". And at the ripe age of 37, the actor essays an insouciant character endowed with great powers of strength, spirit, and intellect. From the moment Olivier strides on screen, the audience is held both rapt and willingly captive. During his magnificent "St. Crispin's Day" speech, Olivier refuses to indulge in excessive personal close-ups, choosing instead to depict the communal impact of his words on the troops. Though he understands the importance of clear, realistic communication, Olivier the director also displays a penchant for artifice--as exemplified by his decision to open the film in a replica of the Globe Theatre. The play's various diplomatic exchanges--usually of the dull, obligatory variety--are enlivened through touches of light comedy: a sly wind blows court papers over the set as courtiers argue over boundaries and treaties. There is also humour to be found in the King's taciturn romancing of Princess Katharine (Renée Asherson). But there are also plenty of large-scale events, with Olivier demonstrating the fleetness of Shakespeare's world even as he mimics the headlong rush of destruction. A romanticised film of a nation at war, the director leaves no doubt that the British victory over the French at Agincourt (1415) was Medieval England's and the King's finest military triumph. The film is rendered complete by William Walton's magnificent score, which pushes all the appropriate patriotic buttons. For his efforts, Olivier received a special Oscar "for his outstanding achievement as actor, producer, and director in bringing Henry V to the screen". --Kevin Mulhall

Contrary to the disc's title (Nice), there is nothing polite about this new release from the Rollins Band. Fronted by aggressively prolific Henry Rollins and backed by members of Mother Superior, the Rollins Band takes a chainsaw to society, cutting down people who speak first and think later ("Stop Look and Listen"), cities that break your spine ("I Want So Much More") and never fitting in ("Going Out Strange"). Rollins gives his typical cynical rants, with a couple peeks into the man behind the muscle--"I'm just lonely," he yells repeatedly on "Hello"--backed by the band's usual vigorous take on hard rock. There are some twists on this album, though, like the funky rhythms on "Your Number Is One" and "Gone Inside the Zero" as well as the electric blues jams on "Hello" and "Let That Devil Out". "Up for It" is the best song on the album, with a James Brown intro and backup gospel singers adding soul to Rollins's heavy-handed approach. Although the Rollins Band does throw around different musical styles on Nice, overall it's still basically as straightforward as the man who fronts it. It's angry rock & roll from one of rock's angriest men. --Jennifer Maerz

Position: full sun or partial shade Soil: moderately fertile, preferably heavy but well-drained soil Rate of growth: average Flowering period: August to October Hardiness: fully hardy Giving unbeatable autumn colour, the flowers of this compact coneflower are also good for cutting. They appear in late summer in generous numbers on stout branching stems and the combination of their quilled ray-florets (petals) and central brown cone is very pretty. Great for mixing with ornamental grasses in a prairie-style setting. Garden care: Lift and divide congested colonies in autumn or spring. Support with ring stakes or brushwood well before the flowers appear.
