Star Trek IV is one of my favorite soundtracks of all time.

Rest In Peace, Leonard.

He was 83 (b. Sept. 7, 1924) at the time of his death, which the article failed to mention . Not a bad run. He did nice work and will be missed.

Re: Leonard Rosenman Passes Away

Oh, and BTW, the advanced reply page is centering the content instead of rendering it left-justified. Now I get a horizontal scrollbar and need to use it to enter text or even to see anything to the right of the textbox. Someone needs to fix the CSS. But forgetting about the centerting, the page is just waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy too wide.

Mine, too. Even though I really liked James Horner's musical take on Trek in STII, Rosenman's score was refreshingly different for Trek, and I loved the main theme, especially -- stirring, adventurous, and yet fun.
