Default London 2012 Olympics should have a Classical anthem...but what?

The BBC have reported that of Of the 2,057 adults questioned, 69% would favour a classical music anthem to stir up support for the 2012 olympics.

What do you think would make a suitable choice? or do you think a new anthem should be composed?

Yes, the Olympics are being hosted in England and the majority of voters want classical music, clearly an Icelandic post-rock band is the best option.
