Ghosts of Reach
This article is about the Halo 2 soundtrack. For the Halo: Legends soundtrack, see Ghosts of Reach (Halo Legends).
Ghosts Of Reach is the fourth track in Halo 2: Original Soundtrack, Volume 1.
The first section of the piece features strings accompanying the vocals from Remembrance, which is a reinterpretation of The Maw (from Halo: Original Soundtrack). The second section features a percussive beat (later featured, unaccompanied by strings, in Encounter in Mombasa Suite) with strings playing a high-tempo rendition of Weight Of Failure (from Prologue), which is followed by Cloistered Expectancy (the Halo 2 version of the Halo Theme from Prologue). The percussive beat ends before the Halo Theme sung by the choir ends.
The second section was reorchestrated into Black Tide from Dread Intrusion in Halo 3: Original Soundtrack. While the first section was reorchestrated into Ghosts of Reach in Halo Legends: Original Soundtrack as well as Unsullied Memory in Halo 2: Anniversary Original Soundtrack, the second section featuring percussive beats was not featured in either albums.
