The choral work at the beginning of the Halo theme song perfectly evokes the majesty and sadness of finding the huge, alien Halo rings that are at the heart of the story.

And the empty church in Switzerland where this dude is singing the choral introduction to the Halo theme perfectly reverberates his voice.

The Halo theme song is one of the most recognizable pieces of music in video game culture. We defy hardcore fans to not get the chills when they watch this video.
