Jaw harps and Legends of the Fall

It took me a while, but I finally noticed the jaw harps tonight, they kinda sound like samples of the chanting being altered electronically, but are really the jaw harps - an extra creepy effect.

I always loved the LONG, Last track of Legends of the Fall, especially when the whole orchestra drops out, when Alfred saves his brother and father's life, and there is a glorious few notes from the brass section followed by passionate strings (near to the beginning of the track after the rythmic panpipes)
Now, in the Missing, in the " long ride home" there is (after the action music part), another glorious statement of an echoing theme by french horn and then trumpets and back and forth! I absolutely love when Horner lets the brass go at the melody once in a while!
Now, which "suite" is better and did anyone else think that he should do this amazing brass work more often?
