@mike mars Every Director, along w his music director, decides what music should accompany different scenes. The selection of Barber’s monumental piece is Perfect-.

When Sheen’s squad leader, played by William DaFoe— a good man and soldier—, is running for the helicopter and get riddled w gunfire and is left behind, this piece highlights the loss.

People associate this piece with that scene, because it was/ is such a perfect choice.

God is good, even in His overarching awareness and dealings w men, often not very good or honorable. Barber himself acknowledged as much by alternately calling this piece Agnes Dei.

Have a good night ✨

As I forgot his last name, I literally typed "samuel strings symph..." and Youtube gave me "Samuel Barber Adagio for strings saxophone".

The algorithm may give strange results, but bless it anyway.
