R.I.P. James Horner - You are valuable. You will be missed.

I was more shocked by his death than I figured I'd be. Usually I hate hearing about a celebrities death but this struck me hard. I'm such a fan of this composer and it's hard to believe we will have no more from him. His scores were the heart of so many, many films. We posted some tribute score pieces in the Facebook film composer score blog this morning and it made it all the more sad. He has done some of my favorite pieces. I'm not sure how many people know, but I'm a film score enthusiast. I will always treasure scores, and pieces of him will love on in the movies he composed for.

I will have this take place of the usual Tune-In Tuesday. A Gift of a Thistle was one of many that was sheer heart and beauty for the movie Braveheart.
