For this snapshot of some of the screen’s greatest Western music, I created a profile of the Western genre (‘Go West… The Rise and Fall of an American genre’) and a piece about music for Westerns and its roots (‘Ballads, Ballet and Bullets… The Music of the Western’).  Finally I provided a ‘Composers’ Score Board’ for each of the featured composers, with a bit of insight into their story and the Westerns they scored, ordered by the amount they’d contributed.  Morricone was Number One with 37 Western film scores (to date).
