    Looked it up and found that Jerry Goldsmith wrote it and it was his only Oscar win. He also wrote music for the star trek movies as well.

    [Edit: see above]

    Many people try to tell me The Omen uses Carl Orff's "O Fortuna" from Carmina Burana - but it most certainly does not! That rumor drives me crazy and I have no idea where it came from.

    Congratulations- you just discovered the best in the history of the film score business! Jerry Goldsmith was extremely prolific, and I see it as quite an injustice that The Omen was his only Oscar win. It is truly a great score, but IMO it is not even his best work. I recommend checking out Patton, The Blue Max and Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
