Both themes are ripped off in Horner's Score   Thursday, April 14, 2005 (12:22 p.m.) 

Love theme - Ralph Vaughn-Williams' "Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis"
Fanfare theme - "Sanctus" movement from Benjamin Britten's "War Requiem".

Enough said - his two main themes are blatant rip off's of classical standards. There is no way he did this accidentally.

It's sad that you actually went through the trouble of it. You couldn't just enjoy the music, couldn't you? What's wrong with adapting? Williams adapts Korngoldian music into Star Wars, and no one says much.
