I just love this sentence:

> Sure, they may sound different as far as the way they are
> played but they are IDENTICAL.

Also... please don't be presumptuous to believe that all think that Williams is superior!
While I do believe that Schindler's List is one of his final good scores (I have not heard a single score of his since Seven years In Tibet that I have played more than once)... I am not one sighted enough to say that Williams is the best at everything he does.

I also prefer the Horner score... while the thematic notes are SIMILAR (not identical), it is the background orchestrations which make it stand out!
I love this theme... and on a listening level (i.e. not in terms of function within a film) I think Horner's theme is far more enjoyable.

I do not discount your love of Williams... just please don't sit there and dictate to us that Willaims' work is superor because YOU think so!
