The Name of the Rose

James Horner

Oscar-winners Sean Connery and F. Murray Abraham star in director Jean-Jacques Annaud’s 1986 adaptation of novelist Umberto Eco’s acclaimed debut novel, a labyrinthine 14th century murder mystery in which a Franciscan monk (Connery) must become a sleuth to solve a series of murders within the walls of a Benedictine abbey.

Unapologetically aiming straight at the film’s genre pedigree, Oscar-winning composer James Horner (
Titanic) plays up the film’s suspense and mystery credentials with effusive orchestral cues appropriately accented with medieval instrumentation and, in three noteworthy instances ("Beata Viscera," "Kyrie," "Veni Sancte Spiritus") straight-up Gregorian Chant. High straining strings search for answers while low droning horns respond, warning of dangers ahead, ever alert to the calculating presence of evil in the world… even in a Benedictine abbey.
