Is there a change in the lyrics? I was listening to the CD and at Judas' Death it one of the priests says: What you have done will be the saving of Israel. In the film, he sings: What you have done will be the saving of everyone.
Also, part of King Herold's Song is different from the soundtrack to the movie. Is there just a different recording, or has soemthing been changed?
There haven't been any changes to the film since its original release.
That's not entirely true... I believe between the original JCSS and the JCSS2000 edition there were a couple of changes as well.
"The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of 'liberalism' they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." -- Norman Thomas
"When you look really deep, we are all kind of shallow" -- unknown
It's been years since I last heard the original London cast recording of JCSS but I do remember there being subtle differences in the arrangement I'm used to in the movie. (Ian Gillan, from Deep Purple, singing as Jesus was definitely cool.)
