I'll add another recording and, well, its download source.
Elmer Bernstein's personal recordings of film scores by his peers have turned up on CDBaby. I have known his version of "The Thief of Bagdad" for awhile. (Others as well.) While I'm about to download Gamba's versions, I'm more than a little passionate about Bernstein's versions of that score, his beyond exemplary version of Herrmann's "The Ghost & Mrs. Muir" and others.
Also -- William Stromberg (and partners) has his Tribute label on CDBaby, too. Value of his recordings is more marvelous with the nature of how recording levels have gone from quite good (on Naxos/Marco Polo) to ecstatically wonderful on Tribute. (Prices there are ecstatically wonderful as well.)
Also -- Gamba's work on Chandos is worth all of our exploring. I began with his Auric CD... then slipped into his replacing the fine Hickox on their Arnold collection: he was (and is) evocative in ways others often aren't. Gamba is one of their finest conductors ever.
