The version with Voices of Light is outstanding. It was a tremendous hit with the Catholic culture club I advise at the school where I teach.

No, the Voices of Light oratorio is a choice on the DVD's menu.  You can view the film silently, or with the oratorio.  In other words, the Voices of Light oratorio is on the DVD that comes from Netflix.

But you can purchase the oratorio separately as a CD or from iTunes.

I saw the film back in Hungary in the sixties in movie theater, and listened to the oratorio here from the local Orchestra several years ago. They projected some scenes from the silent film. Both pounded the same message: the humility, obedience and endurance of St Joan of Arc, the Pucella.

Thanks, I saw the music on iTunes, glad I didn't pull the trigger quite, yet. I will get the disk from Netflix and try that out.

Yeah, it is the Criterion edition that has the silent film or with the score.

Same as mine.   :)

Have a happy birthday (In Hungary the congratulation is valid within 8 days)
