    O Fortuna, from Karl Orff's Carmina Burana

    YouTube- Carmina Burana - O Fortuna (Opera & Philharmonic Society - Ancient Theatre, Plovdiv, Bulgaria)

    Finale of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture

    YouTube- Tchaikovsky, 1812 Overture (Finale)

    Dies Irae (Day of Wrath) from Verdi's Requiem

    YouTube- Verdi: Requiem, Dies irae

    This is not classical, nor is it particularly sophisticated music. This is an old form of folk music called Sacred Harp singing, or Shaped Note singing. Songs typically have a number and a single-word title, this is 300 Calvary.

    Adding in case a song about death would be helpful in striking fear in to an opponent ;)

    My thoughts, that often mount the skies
    Go, search the world beneath
    Where Nature all in ruin lies
    And owns, Her sovereign -- Death!!
    YouTube- N.E. Sacred Harp Convention

    I like the whole thing, because I can hear the dialogue in my head, but it starts to get manly at around 1:30, and kicks your ass at 3:30.

    A slow buildup, but once it hits it's a great feel.

    YouTube- The MAGIC Of Bulgarian Voices & Music Trio Bulgarka - " Strati na Angelaki doumasche " A cappella

    I love the Bulgarian Women's Choir, not really classical but just awesome a cappella gorgeousness. Possibly too meditative although the laments of women in wartime (what many of the songs sound like to me but hey I don't speak Bulgarian) have a certain tragic feel that seems right as an accompaniment before battle.

    If you like it just search for Les Mystere Des Voix Bulgares and you'll find more music.

    another example

    YouTube- 300 - Zaidi, Zaidi Iasno Slantce BULGARIAN song

    Dude, cannons. ;)

    YouTube- Tchaikovsky, 1812 Overture (Finale)

    To sharpen you up for a bit of the old ultra violence.

    YouTube- Henry Purcell's Queen's Funeral - 1695 - Modern version

    And this one isn't classical, but it makes me want to punch things.

    YouTube- RAMMSTEIN - EL SONIDITO (das kleine ton)
