Double wow, I echo everyone's sentiments on this wonderful piece!

This piece is something like flying in dream space over the millennium of time...full of love, grief, war, peace, despair and again hope. It's just absolutely breath taking.

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.

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.

Oh that's it, it reminds me of some of the score from the original Stargate movie.
