That piece of music...

Does anyone else have a piece of music that makes the hair on the nape of your neck stand up?

Weather it fills you with pride or joy etc... What is it?

"Sanctus Fortis" from Elgar's Dream of Gerontius

"Go Forth Upon Thy Journey, Christian Soul" and "Praise to the Holiest" from the same work.

In fact pretty much all of Gerontius gives me goosebumps.

Highland Cathedral gets the hairs up, But I also get it from The Fray "How to save a life" first heard it on Scrubs, Cox (John C McGinley) is trying to save a patient and lashes out at the end.

Edit to Add,

Some music makes a film what it is, would Platoon be as iconic without the Adagio playing?

"Nimrod", played by a military (RAF) band.
"Orange Juice" from the film "Brassed Off".

Handel's Coronation Anthem No 1 - Zadok The Priest. It'd be wonderful if it were performed at the next coronation in our country, be it for Charles or William (both, possibly?).

Doesn't have to be, mine does, but other pieces could be there simply because they stir the soul. "Mae Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau" for example and in my case, as my family is Irish, "Amhrán na bhFiann".
