    Default I'm leaning towards Verdi, Dvorak or Orff...

    I feel rather silly having to ask this given that the piece is rather well known and so I should almost certainly know what it is or at least who it's by. Not only that, but the only excerpt I can find is in a video advertising a computer game! Anyway, here it is, at 5:06 after Prokofiev. The video details suggest that it's Slavonic Dance No.8 but I know that it isn't.

    Many thanks.

    The ubiquitous Orff it is.

    EDIT: NO IT IS NOT.

    I do wish it were so, but having listened to Carmina Burana several times in the past I know that it isn't from it. It does sound very similar to Orff's style though, and like you said, to O Fortuna, hence why I wondered whether it was another one of Orff's works...

    I believe it's from the Verdi Requiem.

    Oh, I'm extremely sorry. (Not to mention a whole lot embarrassed.) I completely confused the two - O Fortuna and the Dies Irae from Verdi's Requiem. It's the latter.

    I'm sure there must have been a reason why I didn't immediately think of listening to Verdi's Requiem, it seems so obvious now. Thank you very much
