The beginning is really promising. This would be a classic if it continued like that. Unfortunately, the rest is quite plain and doesn't keep my interest much. I am sure a lot of people will appreciate it, though, and overall the quality is high.
The opening salvo still impresses me. After that I still enjoy this arrangement/mix quite alot. Still plenty to enjoy here

Overall rating

The instrumentation is pretty close to how I always heard this in my head: big, cinematic, heroic. Until about the halfway point when it inexplicable switches to a more medieval ensemble. I wish it had more of the choir from the intro in the rest of the piece, too.

Unfortunately, this is yet another track from Remix64 vol. 2 that features sample-based instruments that didn't age well with time.
