Is it possible that it's some Creative Commons piece of music that's meant to sound like a certain era/style? The Wilhelm Scream of background music or something?

Every time I've seen this thread, I've been in class, so I haven't been able to listen to it. But given how people are having such a hard time finding out what it is, that would be my guess as an observer.

So. I had the bright idea to try using a song-identifying app on the Archer clip. The app identified it as Iron Maiden---'Wildest Dreams------Live from Dortmund'. That didn't sound like it could possibly be true, so I watched the concert footage, and sure enough, they opened the song with our chorale here. I don't know---------maybe Maiden just loves the song, like how Metallica loves 'The Ecstasy of Gold'. Anyway, after reading through a whole bunch of YouTube comments (my favourite thing!), I found the name of the chorale. It is one 'Declamation', by a certain Chris Payne. It's a modern piece, and yes indeedy, people mistake it for 'O Fortuna' and 'Dies Irae' all the dang time.



So. Mischief managed.
