Alexander Courage has died at the age of 88.
He composed one of the most widely recognised 8-note fanfares ever written.
R.I.P. I'm glad one of his best scores (Superman IV) was released before he died.
He was quite pleased that it was finally released and that many fans of his work and of the Superman film scores, were clamoring for it. He got to listen to a copy of the score before back in March, I think it was.
It's so sad that such a great composer and an even more talented Orchestrator has died. He's yet another great musician that will cease to exist, yet be heard forever...
Rest in Peace my friend.
