    How about something like the instrumental versions of 'Parisienne Walkways' or 'Nights in White Satin' - both are relatively slow and emotionally loaded. Other possibilities are a couple of Black Sabbath tracks: 'Tomorrow's Dream' or 'Planet Caravan' - not fully instrumental, but the vocals are probably not intrusive on Planet Caravan, and with Tomorrow's Dream you could either loop a bit or possibly just turn the treble down to cut the vocals. Edit: added some links. 1: Parisienne Walkways (starts about 90 seconds in to the clip) 2: Nights in white satin (from about 30 seconds in) 3: Planet Caravan 4: Tomorrow's Dream

    For something more un-usual but still heartwrenching look at the alum Craig Armstrong Film works 1995-2005. any songs on that are v beautiful, He is a modern composer and his work is all v powerful. personally i would suggest Main Theme from the quite american.

    if u want me to send it to you for you to hear just ask.
