    Default searching for a piece of music

    I have been looking for a piece of music for a very long time now which i walways hear in films and tv programs but have no idea who composed it or what it is called.

    I can decscribe it as a heavy piece, sounding very Russian choir like, its in the Omen film and usually signifys a scary or 'edge of your seat moment'.

    PLEASE PLEASE could someone help me, i have download hundreds of tracks to find it but alas, no success.

    Verdi: Messa Da Requiem: Dies Irae

    This is the famous second movement which lasts only about 2 minutes, is choral with loud drums and orchestral. Quite scary. Or is what you are looking for a longer piece? What's the nearest equivalent piece among others you know?

    Thanks, i am just gonna download it and see if its the piece i am after. Icant think of any other piece which is anything like it, which is why i guess it gets used so much in different films and programs.

    It's probably Mussorgsky's 'Night on Bald Mountain', He wrote a chorus version of that work, and I saw 'Omen' and believe it was in it.

    I thought you said it contains a choir. Is that right?

    Ok chaps, no luck on either of those pieces you have suggested. Its a very heavy piece and i could only describe it as sounding like a russian choir and very loud and you could imagine being in a big cathedral listeninh to it.

    It sounds like a choir, very deep voices, like i say it sounds russian type but not actually russian words.

    Is it fast or slow, how long does it last, is the choir or the orchestra the dominant sound?

    Its fairly slow in places, you only normally hear it for short times (maybe 20 or 30 seconds) the choir is very dominating. this is all from memory and i am deperatley trying to remember an exact program/film where it is used.

    I think I got it! It's probably Tschaikowsky's 1812 overture. Starts with a big choir, is about 16 minutes long, and has a earth-shaking coda.
