  • Recommend some ambient orchestral music?

    Can anyone recommend some "orchestral" type music that is calm and doesn't contain jarring notes or changes in volume. Something like "Skyrim atmospheres" with very light strings and natural noises like wind or rain. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LjYv_DMF...
