James Horner, 1953-2015

I’ve just learned of the terribly sad news of the loss of James Horner. I don’t know how any of the rest of you feel, but the addition of a well-done film score has lifted, for me, many a mediocre film into the realm of memorable, or even beloved. The Mask of Zorro, while notable for the chemistry between it’s stars (and an outstanding bit of swordplay), might have faded into obscurity, without Horner’s musical efforts.
