Morricone's haunting score climbs 1 place

Even for someone with such a hit rate as Ennio Morricone Cinema Paradiso, Once Upon A Time In America, The Untouchables et al you can't help but feel he would have stood up from the piano after thinking up the tune 'Gabriel's Oboe' for The Mission and said to himself, 'Actually, that's a corker!' Or would that have been, 'Realmente, quello e un corker!'? Possibly.

The Oscar winning 1986 film tells the story of a Spanish Jesuit priest who goes into the South American jungle to build a mission and convert a community of Guarani Indians whilst fighting off the dastardly Portuguese colonials, who are trying to enslave the community. Morricone's haunting soundtrack for the film is regarded as one of his best.
