My school band should totally play this! There's even a glockenspiel part

@tlaylay25 - You are incorrect, this song was not featured in either episodes... you are probably confusing it with either Duel of The Fates or Battle of The Heroes.

I can almost hear the Latin lyrics.. Just pure epic.

I really wish this was the orchestra/vo c a l arrangement. Still a cool song, but it just loses that extra oomph.

Lyrics:

O Fortune, variable as the moon, always dost thou wax and wane. Detestable life, first dost thou mistreat us, and then, whimsically, thou heedest our desires. As the sun melts the ice, so dost thou dissolve both poverty and power.

Monstrous and empty fate, thou, turning wheel, art mean, voiding good health at thy will. Veiled in obscurity, thou dost attack me also. To thy cruel pleasure I bare my back.

Thou dost withdraw my health and virtue; thou dost threaten my emotion and weakness

Put this song to any visuals and it becomes evil. i.e., show hitler and bombs going off. Now use this song with kittens playing and jumping around.

Definitely sounds much better with the vocals.
Yes, it has some similarity to the Star Wars music "Dual of the Fates."
