John Barry has died, aged 77.

John Barry, who died on January 30 aged 77, was one of the most successful of all film composers; he won five Oscars for scores that included Born Free, Out of Africa and Dances With Wolves, but wrote his best-known and most enduring music for the James Bond films.

Some find perfection in Mozart. For me, it is to be found here. This is music for storytelling.

The Ipcress File (1965)

The Persuaders! (1971–1972)

Moonraker (1979)

Out of Africa (1985)
