Yes, thank you for hosting, Stephen. It was great to put faces to names and chat film music for awhile. Very entertaining stories about Barry, too. I'll never hear the term "willy" again without thinking of The Living Daylights.

It's "give it some welly" - possibly after Wellington boots, i.e. to put some kick into it.

Thanks for letting me have a brief sneak peak into the World of Barry Fans. Most of the time, I had no clue what you were talking about, as my affection for Barry's music is relatively new, and I've never been a James Bond fan, but the 'how did you get into' round was nice.

Thor, I was dying to ask you something last night, but didn't want to go off the Barry topics. I know from your posts here that you have a fondness for music with a "religious" or perhaps "spiritual" atmosphere. My question is what is your favourite film score in this regard, and your favourite non-film music in the same vein?

Last night was another winner -- I feel that I've made a lot of new friends. Thanks again, Stephen. I didn't say so, but I agree completely with Mark about the Barry/Morricone pop-music ethos. I also meant to point out an unused cue from North's "STREETCAR..." as film music's first instance of kick-ass jazz: "New Orleans Street".

Oh, gosh. Wouldn't know where to start or stop, really. There's obviously Williams, who has several such tracks in his scores. And in terms of film music, it's usually individual tracks within scores than whole scores. But these are some that really grab me that way:

Film music:

THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY - Alex North
THE SONG OF BERNADETTE - Alfred Newman
THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD - Alfred Newman
LOS BORGIA - Angel Illaramendi
PAPILLON - David Buckley
WHAT DREAMS MAY COME - Ennio Morricone
TERESA - Federico Jusid
THE SILVER CHALICE - Franz Waxman
THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA - Geoffrey Burgon
AGNES OF GOD - Georges Delerue
BLACK ROBE - Georges Delerue
ZWINGLI - Great Garbo
THE DA VINCI CODE - Hans Zimmer
THE BOY IN THE STRIPED PAJAMAS - James Horner
SNOW FALLING ON CEDARS - James Newton Howard
EVERYBODY'S GONE TO THE RAPTURE - Jessica Curry
PRISONERS - Johann Johannsson
PASSION OF THE CHRIST - John Debney
IL DIARIO DI UN PRETE - Marco Werba
THE LEFTOVERS - Max Richter
THE DIG - Michael Land
KING OF KINGS - Miklos Rozsa
THE FLOWERS OF WAR - Qigang Chen
PELLE THE CONQUEROR - Stefan Nilsson
THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION - Thomas Newman
OSCAR & LUCINDA - Thomas Newman
VALLEY OF SHADOWS - Zbigniew Preisner

Non-film music:

Anything Ralph Vaughan Williams
THE MEMORY OF TREES - Enya
Petite Messe Solenelle - Gioacchino Rossini
Matthaus Passion - Bach
Vespers - Sergei Rachmaninov

Just some off the top of my head. Loads more, but again -- easier to make playlists out of individual tracks.

I didn't bring it up! Someone else did.

:-P

Hey Thor, somewhere there's an old thread or two about that topic. Give me time (right, James?smile), s/b able to find it/'em.

That makes much more sense, haha, though my American ears never would have figured that one out. Thanks for clarifying.

I'd go along with most of those, Thor. I'd add Alfred Newman's THE ROBE to the film scores, and I agree completely with Vaughan Williams for the non-film besides chucking in some Bruckner and Robert Simpson. Thanks for sharing.

Bill, I'm not entirely sure what your email or allardyce's email address is. Mine is s.woollers (at) gmail.com.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Oh yes, absolutely. THE ROBE certainly belongs there too. The list was by no means comprehensive. And Bruckner -- definitely!

Everyone, it seems to me like our next ZOOM gathering should be a Morricone tribute session where we can share our Morricone tales and talk about our favourite Morricone scores.

At the moment 9pm (UK time) on Friday, Saturday or Sunday works best for most.

Let me know if you have a strong preference and I'll do my best to accommodate the majority.

Cheers
