Editors’ Notes Best-known for writing the iconic theme for James Bond, John Barry proves his mastery of cinematic composition with his score for Kevin Costner’s Dances With Wolves. Romantic, patient, majestic, “The Buffalo Hunt” and “The John Dunbar Theme” revive the valiance of classic Western scores by Elmer Bernstein. Barry brings the sweeping vistas of the Dakotas into view on “Ride to Fort Hays.” Glory and tragedy are writ large in “Journey to the Buffalo Killing Ground,” while the electronic flourishes of “Fire Dance” add new flavor to a classic idiom.
