Christopher Tin’s theme for Civilization IV, “Baba Yetu,” has snagged a Grammy for best instrumental arrangement with an accompanying vocalist.
Although the track was composed for the 2005 game, it qualified for inclusion at the Grammys because Tin included it on the 2009 album Calling All Dawns.
If you’ve ever played Civilization IV, you’ll be quite familiar with this piece (which re-works the Lords Prayer.) If not, or if you just want to hear it again, it can be found here.
Good though it is, this will always be my first Civilization theme love.
