Default Adagio for Strings

I'm not quite sure of the name of the composer, can't really remember, but this is the song they played after John Kerry's death on television. It is a very sad song, and would be a great addition.

I don't know who John Kerry is, but I think the composer you want is Samuel Barber. He is possibly still in copyright. Lovely piece, originally from a string quartet, I think and then expanded into string orchestra ( around the time of WW2?)

Yes, as suetuba already said, that's a copyrighted piece. Very beautiful, but at the moment we can't publish it. It's assured that as soon we can we'll publish it! I love it too...

Best,

Meant to say John Kennedy. Ah well, didn't know it was copyrighted.
