Here's a nice arrangement of this achingly beautiful song by Ennio Morricone(about one third of the way down the page):
http://www.4shared.com/dir/2060648/6af8ff8e/sharing.html

Maybe not a beginner's piece, but probably doable by many here.

In case you never saw the movie, here's the movie version:

And here it's sung by Celine Dion(I Knew I Loved You):
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gnZjDqdACDU

Yo Yo Ma's interpretation:

And finally Morricone's Lady Caliph Nocturne, used as music by US figure skater Johnny Weir in his Olympic program:

Anyone have the music for this last piece?

I am a fan of Yo Yo Ma. Thanks for the post!

I'll add one.
