    There are so many amazing symphonic movie scores/soundtracks that it's difficult to choose. Generally, films of epic or grander proportions offer more-sumptuous orchestral works. Max Steiner and Miklos Rozsa are two others whose works are notable for "uplifting, moving, and exciting" music.

    There are some awesome pieces on the new The Time Machine album some of which are Celtic. Also The Medicine Man soundtrack has some excellent pieces. Another good instrumental was on a Gallo wine commercial during the 80's. It's called Hymn and it's by Vangelis

    Pearl harbor soundtrack composed by Hans Zimmer. I listen to it a zillion times. The orchestrated pieces are beautifully composed. My favorite song is Tennessee.
