Okay. Let me clear things up. James Horner obviously based "Charging Fort Wagner" on the Carl Orff masterpiece "O Fortuna" (not La Fortuna). He used the same basic harmonic and rhythmic structure. This is a common practice for composers when they want to suggest a thought that another piece has already suggested and still not plagiarize or have to pay copyright on the original piece. As to what the lyrics are, they certainly aren't English (they are latin) and for those of you who don't think they have any similarity to O Fortuna, one of the lyrics happens to be "fortunas". As to what the rest are, it's too hard to tell, but I'm guessing it is not the Dies Irae because that text is sacred and O Fortuna is not. I think Horner would have been purposeful about not mixing them. To find the lyrics of O Fortuna, just type in Carl Orff O Fortuna on any search engine.
