Six, eight, 16 or even 32 — how many horns are too many? Or is the limit unknown? We recently aired a 1990s performance by the London Horn Sound, which turned out to be a listener favorite. It might even help you remember the power of the horn. Here are six tracks for all the horn lovers out there.

Mikhail Glinka — Ruslan and Ludmilla Overture

Gwilym Simcock — Three Point Turn

Queen — Bohemian Rhapsody

Gwilym Simcock — Blues for Hughie

Richard Bissill — Titanic Fantasy

Gwilym Simcock — Give It One
