Ennio had so much clout at this point that he conceived the music first and Leone had to arrange his edits around the embarassment of riches.
The most haunting and diseased harmonica in history duels in tense space with a barbed guitar; the Cantori Moderni bears witness with an elegaic and then operatic chorus; then finally the harmonica staggers through its last corroded wheeze.
Franco De Gemini was Ennio's brilliant harpist, adding ranges of texture to many great scores. Reportedly, Ennio got the proper sound and labored rhythm he wanted on "Death Rattle" by holding the neck of De Gemini and carefully squeezing it for the cues!

Damn. I love this movie so much, outstanding performances by all. Still gives me goosebumps when I hear this. I don't know how.. But Morricone manages to not only portray the dark, haunted past of our protagonist but also the lust vengeance that burns within him.  Well, that's what I hear when I listen to this.
