James Horner: Ten Best Movie Soundtracks
6. Glory (1989)
Glory tells the tragic story of the first black regiment in America and Horner's score is one of his most brilliant. Even on record, the soundtrack packs a huge emotional punch and became a bestseller for the composer before being eclipsed by his scores for Braveheart and Titanic. Civil War drums, trumpets, and piccolos are all present but its the choral and orchestral sweep that packs the real emotional punch.
