Packed with whistles and pipes galore, Horner's Celtic-inspired score contains some of his most haunting melodies.
Horner, who tragically died in 2015, was best known for his clever integration of choral and electronic elements in many of his film scores, and for his frequent use of traditional Irish musical influences as heard in his multiple award-winning score for Titanic in 1997. However, Horner actually trained at the Royal College of Music in London before he moved to California and got his first big movie in 1982: Star Trek — The Wrath of Khan. Horner's music is about as authentically Scottish as Mel Gibson's take on the 13th-century patriot William Wallace. Despite this, the film's bestselling soundtrack is wonderfully uplifting.
