Here is "now we are free" from gladiator, hopefully you can hear what I mean...

Any ideas?
Keep in mind who composed Gladiator's soundtrack: Hans Zimmer. He has a particular style which has been very influential. And also, as Liljagare said, Lisa Gerrard (Dead Can Dance's vocalist). I think in general terms that style is usually labeled as "New Age". There is a series of albums by Karl Jenkins named Adiemus which has similar sounds. Maybe you like it too.
