For me it's The name of the rose and Munich
But I only saw a handful of his films

Moonraker. Though i don't think i've seen many of his films. But Moonraker is still a great score.

About 30 years ago, I sold off my TER LP of Marc Wilkinson's Enigma. Wishing now I hadn't because this is one of those vinyl records that will probably never get re-issued onto CD format.

Have to say, though, that Egisto Macchi's quietly atonal music in Mr. Klein is my favorite musical backing for Lonsdale.

I'll have to consult IMDB for this, I'm afraid, but my favourites are:

MUNICH - Williams

The typical picks, in other words. I realize I've seen very few of his films, but there are others beyond the ones mentioned - only they don't have scores I care for, or no score at all. An example of the latter is the excellent DES HOMMES ET DES DIEUX. No score, as far as I remember. THE NAME OF THE ROSE has an interesting score, but not something I put on very often. And I'm no big fan of Bond or Barry's Bond music, so no MOONRAKER on my list.

Moonraker, obviously. Barry's masterpiece.

My Lonsdale favorites:

Smiley's People

EDIT: Misunderstood the question. Thought it was asking for favorite films. Disregard!

Lonsdale’s Papa scenes in "Munich" are, from memory, I think un-scored; but they are so beautifully played, equally charming and menacing, and the cooking scenes never fail to make my tummy rumble. 'We are tragic men. Butcher's hands. Gentle souls.'

Chariots Of Fire

Some of the obvious ones leap to mind:

Moonraker (Barry)
Munich (Williams)
The Bride Wore Black (Herrmann)

Looking at his filmography, there are also these fine scores:

Behold a Pale Horse (Jarre)
Stavisky (Sondheim)
Nelly et M. Arnaud (Sarde)
Caravan to Vaccares (Myers)
Smiley's People (Gowers - theme)

Easily, Moonraker.

One of my first purchased scores outside of Superman and Star Wars.
And a big childhood favorite that I still enjoy.

And one I forever wish someone would be able to re-record in full.

Always had a special place in my heart for IS PARIS BURNING? as did most of the actors and Maurice Jarre who lived through those events.

Goya’s Ghosts by Varhan Bauer

Certainly Moonraker, but also Michael J. Lewis's The Passage (hey, from the same year!).
