The world is mourning the death of Ennio Morricone and the tributes have been pouring in for the legendary composer.

The Italian musician died on Monday at the age of 91 and people have been remembering his vast array of cinema scores, including pieces from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, A Fistful of Dollars and The Hateful Eight.

Another stunning piece that Morricone was famous for was the music from 1986 movie The Mission and a Mayo cellist has posted his own gorgeous version.

Patrick Dexter managed to pick one of the few moments when it hasn't been raining over the past few days to sit down in front of a stunning west of Ireland backdrop (with dog in tow) and perform a beautiful rendition of one of Ennio Morricone's most famous works.

It's a perfect tribute to Ennio Morricone, a man whose music will live forever and you can check it out for yourself below...

A longer version can be found if you scroll down from the above tweet and you can also check out Patrick on Instagram here. Brilliant stuff from Patrick and no doubt Signore Morricone would have approved.
