Newman, Alfred (1901–70)

Wuthering Heights (1939)

Alfred Newman also wrote the scores for The Song of Bernadette (1943), The Robe (1953) and The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965), all of which include dramatic vocalization.



Death of Cathy and Final Scene

This scene is very similar to the death of Melanie Wilkes in Gone with the Wind, since in both cases dramatic vocalization is used to express a sense of lamentation, and also spiritual transcendence.
