Indeed, the score for Ben-Hur is one of the greatest achievements in Hollywood film music. In this book, Roger Hickman focuses on the confluence of traditions, trends, and innovations that shaped R\u00F3zsa\'s score. Hickman provides an overview of R\u00F3zsa\'s music into the 1960s, looks at the composer\'s musical influences and the development of his distinctive style, and examines how R\u00F3zsa applied these compositional techniques to film scoring. The author then explores the Ben-Hur phenomenon and traces the development of the story and its musical traditions from the original novel into the 21st century. Hickman also examines the conventions of epic films and ties these influences together with a detailed analysis of the score.
