In the Journey's End, when The Doctor flies Earth back home, a background music is played which is my favorite.

I just wanted to listen it on Spotify, but didn't know what to search. Finally, I found it on YouTube by searching "Doctor flies Earth home", but I still don't have its title.

(music starts at 0:25)

I know that it is composed by Murray Gold (I saw him playing it in BBC concert).

Can you please identify its title?

The official soundtrack album identifies it as the "Song of Freedom". You can hear an extended version below.

It might interest you to learn that the song contains lyrics in chanted latin;

Cum tacent clament
Cum tacent clament. Serva ne
Servan tuter
Sevan servan tuter
Dum inter homines sumus colamus humanitatem
Cum tacent clament
Dum inter homines sumus colamus humanitatem
Cum tacent clament.

Which translates into English as;

With silence, we shout
With silence, we shout
Without salvation
He provides our salvation
He provides us our salvation
As long as we are among humans, let us be humane
With silence, we shout
As long as we are among humans, let us be humane
With silence, we shout.

  • It's originally from "Planet of the Ood", isn't it?

  • @UmbrellaCorporation Ok, only the lyrics are, the music is quite different.

The clip (2 minutes 51 seconds) is Song of Freedom, credited to Murray Gold. It's documented in the IMDB.com notes on that episode, and the purchase-able copy was available https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doctor_Who:_Series_4_(soundtrack).

    Not sure why this was downvoted; just because it's not as good as the top answer doesn't mean it's bad.

    @Quesnel - because it was posted ten minutes after mine and contains no new information, I expect.
