Many composers that have used chanting choirs in their scores take inspiration from “O Fortuna” (Examples: Jerry Goldsmith’s “Ave Satani” The Omen , John Williams “Duel of the Fates” Star Wars: Episode I, Don Davis “Neodammerung” The Matrix Revolutions, and Howard Shore “The Ringwraiths” Lord of the Rings). “O Fortuna” itself was used in the King Authur film Excalibur.
