Never read so much nonsense in all my life! Shore, like Horner are both popular plagiarists. More on Horner later, but for now regarding Shore, contemporarily, let's take for instance John Tavener's breathtaking ' The Lamb' or 'Song for Athene' or 'Hymn to the Mother of God' (in less than 2 1/2 minutes). Shore's Lament to Gandalf? Pure erudite decadence with typical film score cadence. At least Taverner makes us attentive, question the familiar and reaquaint ourselves. Ahh! Enlightenment!
