The premiere release of the complete original soundtrack from classic theatrical feature anime HORUS: PRINCE OF THE SUN (aka LITTLE NORSE PRINCE) (1968). First Isao Takahata (GRAVE OF THE FIREFLIES, THE TALE OF THE PRINCESS KAGUYA) directed films. Featuring for the first time ever the entire score used in the film and previously unreleased music not in the previous albums.
Horus, a kid living in an unnamed Scandinavian/Eastern Europe culture of the Iron Age, recovers the Sword of the Sun from the rock giant Moog and learns from his dying father that he must returns to his ancestral territory. In the process, he defends a village from the attacks of Grundewald, a warlord/ice demon and befriends the enigmatic Hilda, a lonely and beautiful girl who sings haunting songs (and who hides a terrible secret).
Directed by Isao Takahata. 1968 Japan.
