    Best war theme is belong to oranje your argument is invalid. It starts as the imperial march for gods sake and one of the best imo. :)

    How about they add a peace theme for monty.. oh wait that would be pretty unnecessary..

    I'm happy if Zulu's war-theme is anything like this (not when they're singing men of harlech, obviously)

    After going through more of the ogg files, I have come to find out that I really like "Middle East/African" music!

    For example: "The_Senses_Awaken_A" is just an awesome, amazing composition! Props props!

    Does anyone know any Shoshone's music? And for Venice, what is the best?

    No idea for The Shoshone, really interested to see what they do with it.
    I've seen people suggesting Vivaldi's Four Seasons for Venice, which would be really cool! :)

    A rendition of Four Seasons would be awesome! I'm sure Geoff Knorr would do a fantastic job with it!

    I imagine Four Seasons being used for Enrico Dandalo, while a piece similar to Indian Brave being used for Pocatello.

    Pity it wasn't Pocahontas of the Powhatan Empire, or they could have used Colors of the Wind.

    I would love the war version of that. :lol:

    but seriously, we should stop suggesting Pocahontas before Fireaxis thinks we want that. :eek:

    I want run the hidden pine trees of the forest, taste the sunsweet berries of the Earth, roll in all the riches all around me and for once never wonder what they're worth. And other tree-huggy things those one-with-nature 'Injuns' love to do.


    I want that to happen just to see the reaction. :mwaha:

    Vivaldi is baroque (18th century), Dandolo lived during the 12th century. I think some medieval or renaissance music would be more appropriate - after all, that was Venice's golden age:

    Holst and Profokiev aren't exactly contemporary with Elizabeth and Catherine, so I don't think that's a concern. Vivaldi is certainly the foremost Venetian composer, and it's hard to see who else they'd choose.

    Unless anyone knows of any decent, specifically Venetian, medieval music...

    Didn't you check the videos I posted? It's early renaissance music and by one of the most important Italian Renaissance composers. I think they'd fit this Venice perfectly.

    Oh, sorry! I assumed you were quoting somebody else. Those would be very good choices too.

    But I think past experience tends to show that if there is a well-known classical composer to choose from, Firaxis tends to go for them.

    I dont think the war song sounds too much like war, and sings about it more than it sounds like war. Imagine that in the army just before war...

    Germany - Peace is great too, I'm always happy when they ask me for something, the music is great. I've caught myself humming it often

    Yeah, after listening to all of these more and more, I found that I love Germany's Peace song, and then Dido's War and Peace songs, and Harun Al-Rashid's War as well!

    My current favs in no particular order:

    Ethiopia - Peace and War
    Austria - Peace and War
    Carthage - Peace and War
    America - Peace and War
    Germany - Peace
    Sweden - War
    Harun Al-Rashid - War
    Ottoman - Peace

    It seems to me that G&K's music was a little better (even though the original stuff is awesome as well), but that makes me think that maybe they'll produce some even better stuff for BNW.

    Also the generic's from the original, some are quite good as well (I've only really went through the "Middle East Africa" folder though, so I've still got a ways to go)

    It is easily the most beautiful of all the war themes. No bombast, no epic feeling, just a mournful melody.
