The use of this piece during the burial-at-se a scene in Master and Commander was masterful.

YoYo Ma does not disappoint. Nor does Ennio Morricone. What a great combination.

Believe it's also used in Troy when Achilles' achilles is pierced, and his body is discovered with only the single arrow in it. Got to look this up though

I'll never forget the first time I heard this piece, back in 1982. Perhaps my favorite piece of music.

Dude this song takes me somewhere deep inside...it is powerful, emotional, and sad but sweet. Definitely one of the best songs written in recent history. "Lark Ascending" is another Vauhn Williams piece that I like too however this is truly my favorite piece. People who understand how awesome this piece is truly have depth to their souls in my opinion. :-)
