Soundtrack Q & A
Q: Could you please email me all of the lyrics from track 15? I love how it sounds and would like to include this song in my wedding if it is appropriate. Thank you. (from Jen in New York)
A: Lisa Gerrard... the woman who sings this song uses an invented language. They're not words of any specific languages nor they mean anything, only she knows the answer to that. She is known to sing most of her songs in this made-up language. (thanks to Pat, Ottawa, Canadaadd more info
A: Also, her language is gleaned from the likes of sound/speech patterns from Aramaic, Hebrew, and Celtic blends. Just think: JRR Tokien and how he did Elvish/Quenya. He was a linguist. Lisa isn't far from this either. (thanks to spunky, TXadd more info

Q: Who is the female singer in the last tune? (from Mario Dubreuil in Sherbrooke, QC, Canada)

A: Track 3 on the soundtrack - "The Battle" (thanks to Patrick Everett, Manila, Philippinesadd more info

Q: What song is playing when he is on the horses after his army has fallen apart? It flicks from him riding and to his son, whom is riding his own horse and is alarmed by soldiers arriving (to kill him) but he thinks its his dad, and thats when his family dies. I think it's a guitar song. (from Tahlia in Aussie)

Q: What's the song playing after "Now We Are Free" in the end credits and is it featured on this CD? (from Chris in UK)
A: I believe the song is called "Rome is the Light" and it is not on this CD but on the 2nd CD released for this film called "More Music from the film Gladiator." It's not an easy one to find but the song is just so excellent and very passionate. (thanks to spunky, TXadd more info
