As news breaks that the prolific and acclaimed composer Ennio Morricone has sadly died at the age of 91, we compile a Baker's Dozen of artists and writers on their favourite work by Il Maestro, from Jane Weaver and Blanck Mass to Ă…rabrot and Rachel Zeffira

Today (July 6), we awoke to the sad news that the great Ennio Morricone, the prolific and brilliant composer, has died aged 91.

With hundreds of scores to his name, many of which are the most enduring of his time, Morricone's name has appeared often in our Baker's Dozen series, and will surely continue to do so.

In the list you'll find the likes of Jane Weaver, Blanck Mass, Bob Stanley, Rachel Zeffira and many more on their personal favourite scores, as well as tQ writer David McKenna's piece on 'Se Telefonando' from our article on songs that make our writers cry, an archive review from tQ editor John Doran, and an excerpt from an interview with Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi on the great man's influence.
