Review

James Horner, the man behind that score, was a lot more inventive earlier on in his career: with such classics as Willow, Star Trek II and The Name of the Rose. The Name of the Rose is a fine score, and is well recommended to anyone requiring music for a dark, medieval campaign (no Space Monks need apply). The score, because of the movie for which it was written, has religious overtones, making it most suitable for adventures set in or around monasteries.
