Italian composer Ennio Morricone passed away today in Rome at the age of 91. He is best known for his legendary movie and TV scores ranging from Sergio Leone’s spaghetti westerns to his Oscar-winning score for The Hateful Eight and a host of others in between, and even the theme to the 1978 FIFA World Cup. And drum corps is no stranger to his excellent compositions, dating back to the Queensmen using music from For a Few Dollars More in 1968, and as recently as Carolina Crown and Jersey Surf just last year.

Here’s a complete listing of all of Ennio Morricone’s works that have been heard in drum corps: http://dcxmuseum.org/index.cfm?view=search&Composer=Morricone%2C Ennio

I hope to hear more of his works on the field in the future. RIP.

NY Knickerbockers opened with the theme from "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" around 1970. A GREAT opener with a very cool mellophone wail on the "whistle" part of the melody, if I recall.

I so wish we could get Crown’s 2019 ballad from the official DCI finals video just for the week, but I’m guessing that may not be possible.

The Mission is without question one of the seminal movie scores of this or any generation. A true giant of music production.
