When the notes fade away

I don’t know about you, but when I am enjoying listening to music, which relates to me at a deep level, I want to keep on listening to the piece hoping it will never end. When it does end, it leaves me feeling haunted, a bit like a powerful dream, memory of which is remembered well after waking up.


There are very few pieces of music out there that have had this effect on me. One of these is “Now we are free” by Lisa Gerrard and Hans Zimmer from Gladiator.
