Beautiful.
This came on in the car one night and I turned up the volume as loud as I could stand it. It was overwhelming ! Songs like these can move one to tears without a single word. This is fantastic work.

Too long!

you also heard this in the movie Troy
It's also quoted in the love theme from The Princess Bride, if anyone's a fan of that movie.

Makes me think Howard Shore was inspired by the Fantasia track vis a vis LOTR.
The Lark Ascending is brilliant. I love this one just a bit more though. Thanks for the info octetindflat .

A lovely work of art from RVW! Also reminded me of parts of the score from the original Stargate and is one of many pieces I enjoy on the Master and Commander soundtrack. My favorite RVW however, is The Lark Ascending.

thomas tallis lived from 1505 to 1585. his music predates the stargate movie by a bit. the melody vaugh williams uses was published by tallis in 1567.
it was a psalm chant in the third mode.

a soaring piece on the power of meditation.

Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis appears in Master and Commander with Russel Crowe.
Oh that's it, it reminds me of some of the score from the original Stargate movie.
I know I've heard this before.... Where.....
