    To be fair, virtually all logographic forms of writing, including both hieroglyphs and hanzi, in practice function on a phonetic basis using the rebus principal.

    Well, Canaanite, at least. The language of the Proto-Sinaitic alphabet was Canaanite but was not Phoenician.

    It depends on if you count an abjad as an alphabet, but most linguists do--as opposed to an abugida, syllabary, or logographic script. :p

    Same here. I do have to comment that some of GS's later era themes are actually reasonably pleasant, though, which is a surprise. From vanilla, DLC, and R&F I hate about 90% of the Atomic themes...

    I am still waiting for Firaxis to upload a version with all GS themes in a single video.

    I noticed that one of the ancient Swedish songs is Herr Mannelig, a medieval ballad. It tells the tale of a knight and a troll, the troll tries to convince the knight to marry her and promises all kinds of gifts in return. The national anthem is also there, though in a less bombastic form compared to civ 5.

    Ceddin Deden is among the Ottoman ambient themes.
    Sadly, no Un Canadien errant in the Canadian ambient themes. Or El Condor Pasa in the Inca ambient themes (maybe too Peruvian?).

    I believe el condor pasa is copyrighted, which may be why they can't use it without spending a lot of money for an ambient track.

    God, the music is gorgeous again. I especially love Hungary's and Inca's themes, though they're all great.

    Started playing as the Māori, and I've heard three ambient songs in addition to the main theme. I've included YouTube links to each below.
    • Ambient themes: I've noticed three so far, with musical and non-musical versions.
    1. "Me He Manu Rere" – a 1920s love song, featured in the First Look Māori video;
    2. "Paikea" – an upbeat hand-action song, based on a 19th-century haka, from the Ngāti Porou tribe;
    3. "Hine E Hine" – an early 20th century lullaby, known to many NZers from TVNZ's "Goodnight Kiwi" video (I also really like this version by José Carreras).

    I am sure I've heard "Du Gamla, Du Fria", Swedish anthem & Civ V theme, among the Swedish ambient themes. Nice to hear it being back.

    Peaches Lamb has posted (all of?) the ambients on their YouTube channel!

    Kinda disappointed that "Northwest Passage" isn't an ambient for Canada.

    That Medieval and Renaissance Maori theme slays this game! It is so beautiful!

    There we have it. À la claire fontaine is now my all-time favourite ambient tune. :clap: All around a stellar soundtrack.

    Thanks! It looks like the Ancient themes posted there aren't the actual full Ancient themes per se...Geoff did the same for the Gathering Storm OST, where the ancient themes were more like ambient themes based on the underlying civ themes rather than the actual Ancient theme in its full form (which tends to be around 4-5 minutes long each).

    From GS civs i've had Canada, Sweden, Maori, Mali and Hungary in my 2 GS games so far. I can I say I like the Maori music the most so far, it is very nice to listen to.

    Maori are the new Zulu, in the sense that their music really gets stuck in my head.

    The fiddle on those Canadian tracks is wonderful. It just about justifies their presence in the game :p
