Another very emotive piece of music. The piece is called "Funeral/Coda" and was composed by Elliot Goldenthal. It was used in the closing of the film "Michael Collins" directed by Neil Jordan and starring Liam Neeson, which told the story of the Irish nationalist revolutionary leader of the same name. In the film, the piece is overlaid onto actual footage of the Michael Collins funeral procession through the streets of Dublin on August 28th, 1922. It remains one of the most haunting scenes from a film that I have ever seen.
