As musician and songwriter myself, I often found that my limited knowledge in composing hindered the full realization of the music I heard in my heart. But when I listened to James Horner's beautiful music, it was as though I were hearing the songs I could never write, but desperately wanted to experience. It was he who was the greatest influence on my writing style today, and I will cherish his work for the rest of my life. I thank God for blessing him with such talent, and though I don't know where Mr. Horner stood concerning God, I pray that someday we'll get to meet in Heaven.
To those who knew him personally, I send my deepest sympathies. My heart goes out to you, as I know what it is to lose a loved one and a friend.
And now, I would like to share with my readers some of my favorite works of James Horner.
