By the way, it probably won't say "music for strings". But I don't think
his vocal works will work. Try this one.

One of the hardest things I have to do is figure out what music fits
the slide shows that I put together for Dimes for Hunger.  We have 
experimented with spoken sound tracks and just music and have decided
just music is a better background for the photographs.  Every year I try
find one recording that is about 10-12 minutes long that will fit the 
format of the show.  It should be fairly smooth, without a lot of 
interruptions. For example, I've used the themes from Platoon and 
Schindler's List.  Both of those had the audience in tears, which is not
bad thing when you are trying to raise money.  If anybody has any 
suggestions for similarly moving, long, and emotional musical themes, I 
would really appreciate it.

All of the photos in the slide show will have been made with Leica
lenses ;-)
