I can't imagine most gamers really appreciate classic Latin church music (I mean Latin the language), even if it's in a movie or something that they've seen, so I really can't see why anyone would want to hear this particular song in their MP in-game starting menu. Personally I don't like this arrangement at all, and I am a fan of Latin church music. The words are indestinguishible, the harmonies are weak, and the melody is just boring. I've heard far better arrangements of Agnus Dei. This sounds more like a Gregorian chant. But to each his (or her) own.
For those of you unfamiliar with Agnus Dei (which I imagine is most of you), and you're curious what the words are, they should be something like this: Agnus dei quitolis pecata mundi miserere nobis dona nobis pacem. Latin church songs really are quite simple. They just repeat two or three sentences over and over again.
For Americans especially, who are pretty much isolated from the countries in Europe which speak the romantic languages (France, Italy, etc), we don't have a clue what the words mean anyway, so the fact that you can't even make them out in this arrangement probably won't matter. Whether or not you like the tune will really be the question here, so you'll have to check it out to find out. But if you know you really don't like church music or music similar to church music, don't bother downloading it.
For those of you who play single-player, this will conflict with some single-player level music. It would really be nice if, for once, this author would take that into consideration and remove such conflicts, considering it's as easy as opening up notepad and making a small change.
