That piece of music...



"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?
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?).
Vaughn Williams, Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis.
