Nella Fantasia

    I have wanted to ask this question many times but never thought to ask on the boards.

    Just listened to Nella Fantasia on Marty Whelan’s radio show.

    Am I imagining this or does parts of the music sound like music from the Braveheart film score?

    I think you are imagining it - or perhaps more confusing it. "Nella Fantasia" is written by Ennio Morricone, and it's a reworking of his own piece, "Gabriel's Oboe", which is part of the score he wrote for the 1986 film "The Mission". Basically, it's "Gabriel's Oboe" with lyrics.

    "Braveheart" came out in the mid-1990s, with a score by James Horner.

    Sorry I should have explained on my first post that I do know Nella Fantasia is a reworking of Gabriel’s Obie.

    However the pieces of music that I think sounds like Braveheart does not feature in Gabriel’s Oboe, only in Nella Fantasia.

    From 16 seconds to 30 seconds (it is repeated a few times through the song)

    I am positive that this is from the Braveheart score which was released three years earlier. I can’t find it on the soundtrack right now but I will listen to it through the day and post the track later.

    The music between 16-30 secs is from The Mission but in an orchestral mode - most prominent in a track called "The Falls".

    25 secs in.
