    Interesting... all this island festivity was a surprise, not what I'd expected from this classic film score.

    A Truly Beautiful and Emotion raising piece of music !! However the music I'm listening to while writing this, I don't think is the actual original version from the film, which is even better and more haunting than this piano based version!!
