Musical Monday: “Dream of Albion” (Medieval: Total War II), composed by Jeff van Dyck

This week’s song is the haunting, beautiful title theme of the Britannia campaign, from the Kingdoms expansion for Medieval: Total War II. As with “Uncle Samurai” from Shogun 2: Fall of the Samurai, this is one case where Jeff van Dyck’s music was better than the rest of the game —  Medieval II is my least favourite entry in the series. Enjoy!

(Fun trivia: this is actually built around an old Scottish folk song, “Ailein duinn”. Personally, I prefer this to the original, or at least to the versions of the original I’ve heard on Youtube.)

  1. What are the Lyrics ?

    And yes indeed, I agree with you, I sometimes open the game just to listen to the song

    As in terms of playing I prefered the Teutonic campaign
