Not quite. The theme was used in "Glory" a few years earlier (1989), which itself probably ripped it off of a Ralph Vaughn Williams piece. Try listening to "Fantasia on a Theme by T. Talis" by VW and then "Burning the Town of Darien" (I believe, though it might be "The Whipping," I've forgotten) and you'll hear the same four notes that David Arnold later used in Stargate.
