    On 19 April 1994, James Horner finished recording at Abbey Road Studios with the London Symphony Orchestra. He had just delivered one of the most lyrical and romantic pieces of music in his career: Legends Of The Fall. Exactly twenty-six years and two days later, at a time when the world is undergoing a profound crisis, Intrada, in collaboration with TriStar Pictures and Sony Music Entertainment has gifted us all a stellar two-disc deluxe edition, expanding the already generous original album to include the complete score and providing over 35 minutes of alternates, extended cues and film edits. Completists will[...]


    James Horner always focused on story and especially character. Famously (within the Horner community at least), he once stated in the context of his two Star Trek scores that it was always about Spock and Kirk and that “the action would take care of itself”. It should come as no surprise that this focus on characters and their humanity has been the obvious guideline for a series of articles such as this. I have always selected music cues I believe James Horner would have wanted to see discussed. For this episode, however, the reader’s attention is directed toward three cues[...]


    There are voices so beautiful that they haunt you forever. Maggie Boyle’s was among them. Margaret Boyle, folk musician, who was a member of the trio Grace Notes and who worked with such artists as John Renbourn and Bert Jansch, passed away on November 6, 2014 at the age of 57 years. Mike Taylor of the music group, Incantation, recommended her for Patriot Games. In interpreting the traditional song, The Quiet Land Of Erin, for the film by Philip Noyce, she entered gracefully into the musical world of James Horner. His return two years later on Legends Of The Fall finally gave[...]


    It has been exactly twenty years, since the period from 8 to 19 April 1994, when James Horner recorded at Abbey Road Studios with the London Symphony Orchestra, one of the most lyrical and romantic pieces of music in his career: Legends Of The Fall. This anniversary is an opportunity to return to this score, whose impact has preserved all its strength for two decades. After Glory (1989) and before Courage Under Fire (1996), the composer met up with the American director Edward Zwick for this adaptation of Jim Harrison's eponymous short novel, which brought together on screen Brad Pitt, Anthony[...]


    What a lovely and fitting coincidence to have both scores composed by James Horner for the adventures of Jack Ryan released in extended versions within a month. Indeed, after Clear And Present Danger (1994) in June from Intrada, it was La-La Land Records’ turn to offer us Patriot Games (1992), which contains more than thirty minutes of previously unreleased music. This is an underestimated score and, despite its cold aspect (the horns and Tony Hinnigan’s pipes and flutes are not present) and some less accessible electro-percussive parts, Patriot Games deserves a second chance. The strength of this new limited edition of[...]
