Thank you for suggesting music that I'll like!
It was written long before Private Ryan
it's in Saving private ryan
This piece has pure simplicity, yet pure nobility in the highest sense.

And this is why I'm a percussionis t .
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.
I just love this song
WOW! Thanks for all the comments and information! Learn something everyday.:-)
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.

Makes me want to salute all the vetrans
Actually, James Horner composed a very similar theme for Apollo 13. Check it out on Youtube or elsewhere!
Hoooooooommm m m m m . . . . . .. ... yez possibly.
Was this beautiful music played in the movie Apollo 13?
majestic and emotional; makes me want to stand and salute or cry
Dramatic, bpwaldenir - but right.
pandakatie84
nice
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
one of the greatest compositions that came outta America. God Bless Aaron Copland.

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.
THE GREATEST SONG EVER WRITTEN!
