Actually, I spent years trying to get a copy of the track of The Mission,
which I found at least as memorable as Aguirre, the Wrath of God, though
I am not making a comparative jusdment. I can never hear the panpipe--and
there was an Andean troupe that seemed to be following me around Europe
years ago--without thinking of it. One of Enya's popular songs is also
reminiscent of it.
