This music may sound familiar, it was used in the score for Master and Commander.

It’s also very influential.

The Tallis Fantasia would have made suitable temp music in Lord of the Rings, Braveheart, How to Drain Your Dragon, and perhaps even the upcoming Your Highness.  It is is very English in character, but it would be suitable as temp music in any historical European setting.

Great for epic mountain range travel shots, romantic partings and homecomings, religious moments, and of course racing home in response to terrible news.

It also happens to be very listenable as background music.
