High Charity is the eighteenth track in Halo 2: Original Soundtrack, Volume 1. A shorter version of the track was incorporated into the second section of Antediluvia from the High Charity Suite in Halo 2: Original Soundtrack, Volume 2. The vocals of the song follow the melody of Respite from the High Charity Suite.

It is heard in the Halo 2 level Gravemind, when John-117 takes a gravity bridge to the second Hanging Gardens, where Unggoy are being attacked by a pair of Jiralhanae. It plays in the form of Antediluvia during the level High Charity, when Cortana and John-117 discusses the plan to stop the Prophet of Truth. A variation plays in the level The Great Journey, after Avery Johnson destroyed the control room door with the Protos-pattern Scarab's focus cannon.

The piece was reorchestrated into Into the Belly of the Beast in Halo 2: Anniversary Original Soundtrack.
