Yesterday saw the passing of composer James Horner, and while everyone has had a lot of kind words to say about the man and his work, sometimes words can be fleeting for such a tragedy. I know there's a lot of you out there playing your favorite James Horner scores today, and whether it be STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN, THE LAND BEFORE TIME, BRAVEHEART, ALIENS, GLORY, TITANIC, AVATAR, or another, his legacy lives on and will continue to inspire.

Here's our tribute to some of the timeless work of James Horner, and while it's but a small sampling of some of his music, we hope it will move you as much as it does us.

It's The Land Before Time.
Horner's music for kids films (An American Tail, The Land Before Time, and Casper) were beyond the music you'd expect to here. They were bursting with so much emotional beauty to perfectly match the stunning animation drawings.

One of the last great film composers who actually composed an orchestra to it's full potential. No matter what the film was, a grand epic like Titanic or a simple kid's cartoon like An American Tail, a war drama like Glory or a silly yet moving ghost story like Casper, Horner made every piece of music sound so majestic that his death will make the music of the world now sound a little empty.
The first film I ever saw in the movie theater was An American Tail. Aside from it appealing to me as

The first film I ever saw in the movie theater was An American Tail. Aside from it appealing to me as a kid film, the one true gem of the film which was so memorizing and had such a profound impact on the way I view movies was hearing James Horner's score.
I don't know what else to say? A man I unfortunately never met, but whose music meant so much to me the idea of realizing there will not be another Horner score in the theater again kind of crushes my heart. James, your music made me cry, it sent chills up and down my spine, it made the visuals of the film echo with shock and awe, and it filled me with so much joy and wonder all I can do is thank you greatly for opening up my ears and allowing my love for movies to soar to unlimited possibilities.

Great composer

Composers like Horner are the Mozart's and Beethoven's of our time. I had the opportunity to meet him about three years ago and he was very cordial and friendly. Everyone was excited to know they were in the same room as him when his presence was announced. Great video tribute.

A crushing blow to cinema. I listen to Wrath of Khan constantly. I didn't realize he was a mere 28 when he composed the soundtrack for that film. He took an already epic theme and spun in on its' head like no other and something I still haven't no ever will hear again in that franchise.
Rest in piece Mr. Horner. You will be missed.
