    A tragedy to lose such an amazing composer at so young an age. I am sure his unclaimed future would have been full of master works. At least we can enjoy his great legacy.

    Of all the music ever composed for motion pictures, James Horner’s exquisite soul filling scores especially what he created for Apollo 13 have inspired me the most.

    I always listen to music when I write my books and novels. And always to James Horner.

    Thank you for remembering him with this tribute.
