There’s over 11 hours of music on this collection. If you can’t find something inspirational here, we don’t know what to say.
Even if you’re not acquainted with classical music, many of these songs will sound familiar You’ve heard snippets of them in commercials. Some get played around Christmas time. Others play in the background of movies.
But there’s something here for many occasions at the tabletop:
Sneaking around a giant’s lair? Play “Peer Gynt Suite No. 1, Op. 46: In the Hall of the Mountain King.”
Need a villain to make a grand entrance? “Romeo and Juliet, Suite No. 2, Op. 64c: Montagues and Capulets.”
Need to really creep out your players after they find that divine artifact (Ark of the Covenant, Wand of Orkus, Stormbringer, or whatever)? “Song of Cherubim for Mixed Choir.”
Did the player-characters suffer a massive and demoralizing defeat? “Adagio for Strings.”
Getting ready for Götterdämmerung? Wagner’s “Ride of the Valkyries.”
There’s so much music here, it will take you awhile to sort it out for your games.
Our advice, create playlists based on categories: “Combat”, “Villain Themes,” “Romantic Interludes”, etc. Then add items to each playlist as you listen through the album.
