Background Music

I am making a visit to the New Military Memorial in Staffordshire this coming Sunday, with the intention of taking photographs as well as paying my respects to fallen comrades. I intend to compile the photos on to a DVD accompanied by background music. I have a few ideas of what to put on, but am looking for suggestions from other sources such as ARRSE members.
Any of you make any suggestions of any moving pieces you may know of?
Non-vocal would be preferable.

Thanks in anticipation

Maybe not too original, but the soundtrack to Band of brothers is quite emotive.
Gladiator has some good stuff on the soundtrack, but for that over the top emotional kill I would go for Nimrod!

PS, Classic FM is offering free music downloads at the moment.
Have a look at this post below


But choose something original for fecks sake.
We're all sick of Wind of Change, Theme from Harry's Game, Highland Cathedral, Lost Prophet's songs, Brothers in Arms etc.
as for the pictures will be the main message - at least imho
perhaps rather not too emotional over the top - cause it's supposed to be 'background'
i'd choose something like 'if you could read my mind' or any other 'light' but emotional instrumental piece of music
but depends on what you choose to be the message

just my idea about it - because a place like that tells it's own story anyway
and to give everybody who's watching the chance to build up their own thoughts and feelings
i wouldn't blanket the pictures by music
