Legendary composer James Horner’s back catalogue of soundtracks is enormous, consisting of over 157 titles – a number of which earned him academy awards and global recognition.
Here we pay tribute to the Hollywood legend with some of what we consider to be his career highlights – along with this great video medley that we’ve created above ‘My Braveheart Will Go On’ which consists of :
My Heart Will Go On (Titanic)
For The Love Of A Princess (Braveheart)
The Ludlows (Legends Of The Fall)
The Wedding (Deep Impact)
The Launch (Apollo 13)
I See You (Avatar)
Here’s a breakdown of some of those tracks here – all of which you can find in the new The Ultimate James Horner Film Score Collection here.
“My job is to make sure at every turn of the film it’s something the audience can feel with their heart,” He said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.
“When we lose a character, when somebody wins, when somebody loses, when someone disappears – at all times I’m keeping track, constantly, of what the heart is supposed to be feeling. That is my primary role.”
