Reappearance of Revell TR score in "Most Haunted"

As outlined in a recent article, it is certainly not uncommon for music production teams in television, film and video games to unknowingly reuse samples provided by general licensed audio libraries. This results in the repetition of cues across different media, often exclaimed about by keen-eared fans of entities involved.

Graeme Revell, the Kiwi composer behind the music to Lara Croft: Tomb Raider (2001), was hired very late into post-production and allegedly had a mere 10 days to complete the entire musical score to the film. In order to achieve this in the extremely limited time-frame he was given, Revell had to rely heavily on pre-produced snippets from various Spectrasonics sample libraries.

It's not surprising to see, when the same library is sourced to score a television show "Most Haunted", the reappearance of the theme dubbed "Lara Dreams of Her Father" (previously incorrectly labelled as "Powell and the Illuminati"):


Tomb Raider's score is still available on Audio CD via Amazon.com. "Lara Dreams of Her Father" is included on the album; feel free to stream below:
