Need Help In Determining The Name And Artist...

What's that classical music I heard?

Need Help In Determining The Name And Artist...

Postby tvan » Tue Mar 01, 2011 2:23 am

Appreciate any help in determining the name and artist of this piece. It sounds a lot like O Fortuna but it is not. Really appreciate any help you can provide. Have searched hundreds of sites and it is driving me crazy.

Thanks!

The dramatic choir singing Latin, the chord progression, the epic feel... we're pretty sure this is production music in the style of Carl Orff's "O Fortuna."

Due to "O Fortuna's" massive popularity, production music companies have churned out hundreds of sound-alike pieces, since almost every epic movie and video game trailer needs one. Watch this video to see how common these sound-alike pieces are:

Wish we could be of more help. Best wishes!

Thanks. Yes. I ran across this You Tube video last weekend and it certainly has many pieces that are very close. I am embarrassed to say that I have spent several hours trying to determine the name and artist of this piece.

It definately sounds like a spin off of O Fortuna but it has a very cool contemporary drum beat. I want to purchase the piece on iTunes or other but I cannot identify the source.

Any additional thoughts would be much appreciated!
