I think I'd easily rank epic choral music as my favorite type of music. I've always liked it and have been curious about it. I was talking to ysabel about choral lyrics and that inspired me to start this thread to see what everybody else has to say. Basically, many of the epic songs you hear in movies have people singing odd sounding "words" or "phrases" in the background. A few examples: YouTube - Navras - Juno Reactor YouTube - Lord of the Rings The Two Towers - O Fortuna YouTube - E.S. Posthumus - Pompeii YouTube - Spiderman & X-men Lacrimosa YouTube - Here Comes The King YouTube - ... To Die For (Uncut) - Lion King Complete Score YouTube - Returns, King of Pride Rock (#2) - Lion King Complete Score Then there are the ones that seem like they are not saying anything, and I am pretty sure they are not: YouTube - Star Wars - Duel Of The Fates YouTube - danny phantom requiem for a dream So, who here knows much about this type of music? Are the lyrics generally random or what? I assume it's in Latin? I don't know much about this but I've always liked this type of music. Any info would be appreciated. Also, feel free to post other epic music you like in this thread and specify whether it has lyrics or just sounds.
