    Default much needed help in identifying "Opium War" film soundtrack

    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering if someone had any inkling as to the origin of the piece used at the final scene of the
    film "Opium War" (1997). The piece can be heard around 2:29:45when the Yellow Emperor worships his Qing ancestor at the temple. I got no luck with Shazam, which is why I rely on the community.

    Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YWzeZ5sNxmk

    Many thanks !

    I'd guess this is typically a classical inspired soundtrack by well-educated composers, in this case Fuzai Jin and Huang Han Qi (according to IMDB).
    I treat my music like I treat my pets. It’s something to own, care about and curate with attention to detail. From a blog by hjr.

    I think that Art Rock is right, even imdb has no info,
