    In the film Defence of the Realm, Gabriel Byrne, is sitting in his flat and some music is playing on his stereo, it is a string piece and I wonder if anyone can tell me what the piece is called please?

    I think the music was Pachelbel's Canon.

    Hello Folks



    This is my first posting and I wanted to ask a question about The Defence of the Realm - What is the the classical music used in the film?

    Greetings Hansander!



    Richard Harvey is the credited composer (the more elderly among us might remember having seen him playing with "medieval prog" outfit Gryphon in an earlier life....) - can't remember whether there was some more "legit" classical stuff being used as well. I do remember seeing it at the cinema on release, tho' - despite some formulaic 80s BritThriller devices, it stuck me as speaking very pertinently to the sense of paranoia that a lot of us on the Left (remember the Left?) felt in post-Falklands Thatcherite Britain. And it had the great Denholm Elliott in it....

    I seem to recall it was that old chestnut, Pachelbel's Canon. The movie was pitched as a British Parallax View and has one unforgettable line - "Vodka and Coke. Detente in a glass."

    As I recall, the only classical music used is in the scenes where Gabriel Byrne plays some on his record player in his flat (which is also key to the final scene). It's Canon in D by Pachelbel (known simply as Pachelbel's canon)
