Gabriel's Oboe

Today I came across this beautiful and melancholic composition, "Gabriel's Oboe," from the movie The Mission. Whenever I listen to it I get a lump in my throat, goose-bumps, and it's all I can do to hold back tears. Those who remember the 1986 movie, Jeremy Irons is the Spanish Jesuit priest who wins the trust of the Guarani community by playing his oboe, and establishes a Christian mission among them.
