Hallow guys, i need some really sad music. It doesn't have to be piano or classical, any kind of music is most welcome. No songs please, only music.

I read the manga and watched the anime, I thought it was a good story.

i think it is one of the best. you could tell the writers/animators/composer really cared about the project and the characters. heartbreaking work. work of art in its own way really. i haven't watched it in years, i may revisit it soon (i need to be in the mood for the 'downer effect' it has since i know what is coming, man that scene where mariko finally reuinites with her father is a tear jerker.... :'( ).

i think the 'saints' version of the song is most effective but he op said 'no songs' so i have to assume he doesnt want words, wich all but eliminates my top five pieces (or more) i would have suggested.

absolutely love this (britten's harp interlude in ceremony of carols), it chokes me up everytime. starts off slow but has beautiful middle section.  Saw a ballet set to it once where mary danced her sorrow at realising her son would be killed.  V powerful.

so we're all familiar w the standard piano violin ver for pearlman but this jazz ver by american saxophonist dave koz has a different kind of sadness to it, it works!

"O Machine!" she murmured, and caressed her Book, and was comforted.
