    My favorites include:
    • Ultima III: Castle of Fire
    • Ultima VI: Character Creation
    • Ultima VI: Endgame (interleaving Rule Britannia and Audchar Gargl Zenmur)
    • Ultima Online: Battle on Stones (from Stygian Abyss, I believe)

    Ultima 3 combat, ultima 6 creation (listen in MT-32) and intro (heck all of U6), Stones goes without saying (it was my wedding processional). I can still listen to old Apple II+ mockingboard files and be brought back 30 years.

    Just to add to all the great tracks mentioned already, I always loved the Tenebrae theme from U8.

    For those who have not as of yet, check out the soundtrack (free download) of U5: Lazarus, specifically the Character Creation and Stones Remix tracks. Quite a few more great renditions on that soundtrack as well.

    UO Vesper and Cove are both really beautiful.

    I always liked the music when you played those little "Pan" flutes in U7. :)

    Then the U6 Intro and Boot music are also amazing!

    Ultima 6 was my introduction to computer gaming. Nothing else is quite as memorable as being 6 years old and learning how to use computers with your dad.

    Ultima Online music was very good, I think it heavily borrowed from previous games, but, that's okay.

    I like Ultima 6's "Ultima" song. There is a remade on UO's newer client, but I couldn't find it anymore for some reason. It's at 3:50 min on the video below.

    I can't run it on my mac anymore either. I think your best bet would be to run via a VM. It is worth playing, if only for the portraits and dialog, it's a glimse of what a remastered Ultima V would look like.

    I personally still think there's value in redoing those 2 games (IV and V)

    Greetings all, so I have to admit that I am old.... I started playing U2 on Commodore 64 which had its own sound (SID) chip. To this day I can not hear a harpsichord without thinking of Ultima II and III. So my favorite would be anything played on the Harpsichord.
