Requiem for a Tower
"Requiem for a Tower" is a version of Clint Mansell's Lux Æterna/Requiem For A Dream, re-orchestrated with a choir and full orchestra with a sample of Marion Barfs for a The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers trailer. It was arranged by Simone Benyacar, Daniel Nielsen, and Veigar Margeirsson. On album, it appears as Requiem for a Dream - Requiem for a Tower (YTMND). After Marion Barfs, the next part appears to be bought off by GRV Music. This is called "Requiem: World At War" which is on the album Bellum.
Though released to YTMND's infamous soundtracks, it can not be found on iTunes, Amazon MP3 or any other music distributors, it is after considerable demand by fans the re-recording(s) were made available as part of the Requiem for a Tower album release from Corner Stone Cues , a subsidiary catalogue of Howling Entertainment. While the release was originally made physically, production was discontinued indefinitely with increased digital sales of the album on major electronic music distributors iTunes and Amazon MP3.
The popularity of the original song, "Lux Aeterna", led to its use in popular culture outside the film, most notably in film and teaser trailers along with being the theme song on Sky Sports News. YTMND's The Soundtrack - Volume 5 is unknown if it is on CD
