This piece has pure simplicity, yet pure nobility in the highest sense.

Aha! That explains it. I thought Copland composed it originally. It sounds pretty close to Copland's version, as far as I remember, but it's been a while.

itsarooster: it wasn't originally but it's been used in several, most notably, The Right Stuff.

My favorite cover of this piece is by Emerson, Lake and Palmer. For those who haven't heard it (and like rock music), check it out.

Every page linked to a song cover has this discussion. We know that Copland composed the work. Mannheim Steamroller is doing a cover. They have permission to do it. Pandora is putting Mannheim Steamroller as the artist because they're using Mannheim Steamroller' s version. No one is getting credit they don't deserve. Simma dahn.

This was actually written by the great American composer Aaron Copland not Mannheim Steamroller.

Actually, James Horner composed a very similar theme for Apollo 13. Check it out on Youtube or elsewhere!

is this in band of brothers or something, because it sounds like it would be in an American war movie or show with the strong trumpets and background drums

I love it. I was surprised that Chip Davis recorded it. It was composed by Aaron Copland.

Majestic, close your eyes and lose yourself in the majesty of common man elevated by God himself.
