5 on Friday - Set 184

Travis at Trav's Thoughts invites everyone to lay down a short set of music that takes their fancies for his 5 on Friday meme.

Last Sunday I bumped into a broadcast of Gladiator while my mom and I were just finishing up breakfast. I hurried downstairs to our apartment and settled in with Brad to watch it. Oh, how I love Gladiator. It was the film that made me fall in love with movies again, after getting burnt out a bit, following film school.

So this week's 5 on Friday begins with a favorite piece from the Gladiator soundtrack, and moves into different soundtrack pieces that are amongst my favorites. 

1 - Now We Are Free - Gladiator - composed by Hans Zimmer and Lisa Gerrard  

2 - Message For the Queen - 300 - composed by Tyler Bates

3 - The Riders of Rohan - The Two Towers - composed by Howard Shore

4 - The Gael - The Last of the Mohicans - composed by Randy Edelman and Trevor Jones

5 - Duel of the Fates - The Phantom Menace - composed by John Williams
