The Mission
Ennio Morricone

Review

Similar to 1492 - Conquest of Paradise, this soundtrack has more religious overtones, with the choral pieces adding a spiritual flavour to the music. This strange blend of pipes, voices and traditional instruments has produced an exotic set of music which could be utilised best in exploration adventures.
