    Pam,



    Under the thread RE: Use of Film Music, I wrote:



    Frankly, I have not seen the picture, but it is probably one of the following three tunes:

    * Byrd: "Domine Decundum Actum Meum"

    * Elgar: "Enigma Variations"

    * Mozart: "Requiem (Introitus)"



    On Amazon US, you can hear the sample for Byrd's "Domine Decundum Actum Meum" from the Elizabeth soundtrack.



    William Byrd is the only one from her era, an actual court musician and pupil of Thomas Tallis. While I usually am irritated by anachronisms. Such elements in music can kill the period feel, but sometimes it works so well, one can only enjoy it all the same.



    Added note: there are two soundtracks, which have a sweet mysterious melancholy that set the stage for their films: the themes to "Mary, Queen of Scots" with Vanessa Redgrave and "The Thornbirds" with Rachel Ward. These are not period pieces, but really set the stage for the films, especially the first one.
