「ゴッドファーザー・サーガ」と呼ばれる1977年のTV用作品放送時にリリースされたアルバムで、カーマイン・コッポラが2つの映画から音楽のハイライトを選んで再アレンジし、ロータの主要テーマと彼自身の原曲をすべて含み、実質的に14部からなる交響組曲に仕上げています。この作品のために、カーマイン・コッポラが監修した音楽とアレンジが追加された。そのうちの少なくとも一部は、この交響組曲に収録されていると考えて間違いないであろう。オスカーにノミネートされたオリジナル曲「Promise Me You'll Remember」の元となった「愛のテーマ」が組曲に加え、インストゥルメンタル・アレンジも収録されています。

Not at all dangerous, but no less powerful and devoted to one another, the Coppola family have loomed large in film and the arts for decades. The head of this particular family was not a Don lurking in the shadows, but a brilliant composer arranger and conductor: Carmine Coppola.
On the face of it, this album is a bit of a curiosity, though it was surely the first recording to bring together music from both Godfather films in this way. Its original release coincided with a high-profile television event called The Godfather: A Novel for Television (also known as The Godfather Saga).
The extended cut necessarily featured additional music and arrangements, which were overseen by Carmine Coppola. We can safely assume that at least some of that forms part of what is included in The Godfather Suite. For it, Coppola selected and re-arranged musical highlights from the two films, including all of Rota’s main themes and his own source music pieces, creating what is essentially a 14-part symphonic suite.
It’s all rather beautifully executed, with great romantic flourishes, and it’s a fitting tribute to Carmine Coppola’s talent, not to mention his contribution to two legendary films.
Carmine Coppola himself passed away just months after the release of The Godfather Part III. A highlight of that final score is the ‘Love Theme’, which was the basis of Carmine Coppola and lyricist John Bettis’s Oscar-nominated original song ‘Promise Me You’ll Remember’. The instrumental arrangement is included here in addition to the Suite
