So sad to hear the news on the death of composer Ennio Morricone.  His film scores for Sergio Leone's "spaghetti westerns" were something very new and different, and well suited to Clint Eastwood's man-with-no-name characters. But he was so much more than just those western movie scores to which we seem to gravitate.

 

One of my favorite instrumentals is this one is from the film, The Mission, the beautiful, Gabriel's Oboe.  RIP, Maestro Morricone. You will be greatly missed, but we will always have your beautiful gift of music for the ages.
