Rest In Peace James Horner, Your Music Will Live Forever

A couple weeks ago, I wrote an article called “A Gift of a Thistle”.  That title was based on the second track from the Braveheart score.  The composer of this music, along with hundreds of other movies, died in a plane crash yesterday in Southern California.

To say James Horner changed my perspectives on life would be an understatement.  His music always brings me to places where my deepest thoughts live.  It’s a shame we won’t hear his masterpieces in the future, but the music he will be composing now will be out of our ability to understand or even contemplate.  I’m sure he is already assembling hosts of angels and creating heavenly masterpieces.

I will always treasure his scores on Braveheart, Legends of the Fall, Titanic, A Beautiful Mind, Avatar, Field of Dreams, Glory, Dad, Aliens, and so many more.  Rest in peace James…
