High Charity Suite is a suite of songs included in the Halo 2: Original Soundtrack. It includes Rue and Woe, Respite, Antediluvia, and Pursuit of Truth.

Two fragments of this track appear in the Halo 3: Original Soundtrack. The piece heard from the beginning to 1:31, Rue and Woe, is remade in "Black Tower/Heroes Also Fall", is played when Miranda Keyes is killed, and the part heard from 1:38 to 3:45, Respite, is re-used in the piece Tribute.

In Halo 2, Rue and Woe is played during the Quarantine Zone campaign level, when you link up with Rtas 'Vadumee after exiting the crashed Sentinel Constructor Factory, and Respite is played during the cutscene that opens the Shooting Gallery section of the Quarantine Zone level. Later, it can be heard on the level High Charity. Pursuit of Truth is played in the level High Charity, near the area where the Yanme'e are fighting the Flood Combat Forms.

Trivia[edit]

  • This song contains an homage to Alexander Seropian's Leela theme heard in the first Marathon game. This piece can be specifically heard from 6:11 to 8:29.
  • Part of this track, along with part of the Delta Halo Suite, was used in a slightly altered form for the Halo Legends theme.
  • The term "Antediluvia" refers to the period before the Flood in the Bible. It is possibly a reference to the state of High Charity before the Flood overran it.
  • Part of Pursuit of Truth is a partial remake of the track known as What? which can be found here.
