I realise that Horner is guilty of theft here, but are you really saying that it makes no difference that Holst did the same?? Without meaning to justify Horner's steal, I'm just trying to put things in a fair perspective. I mean, there has been a lot of fuss made in the decade since Braveheart about how Horner pinched the melody from Holst. But in the near-century since The Planets, it is never admitted that the "Jupiter Hymn" itself is obviously a plagiarism/recycling of an earlier work. By another composer.
