I've scoured endlessly to find a particular song used in several action/thriller movie trailers, and I've come up short up to now. It's an opera choir singing that builds up to a long climax, with a moderately slow tempo, and it's used during a drama-filled battle sequences, e.g. Lord of the Rings, 300. It's not 'O Fortuna', but the same notes are hit.
Now, this youtube clip has several production samples, but if you listen at 2:08 (The Chronicles of Narnia - Battle Scene), this has almost the same tempo, with the same 'drum' sound in the background. To be more specific, the first two notes sung at 2:15 are the EXACT notes used in my unknown song to start the build-up and climax.
I know this is tough, but this site is by far the most detailed and well managed site about classical music I've found. If anyone can help me out on this, I'd be forever grateful.
It's not from this track but it sounds like it, same tempo. The song I'm looking for has been around for years, and it's been used in several motion picture trailers. I think Hans Zimmer may have composed the piece. Again, listen to the two notes sung at minute 2:15; hopefully someone will recognize it.
