    I believe the stones song falls under the intellectual property of Ultima which EA owns unfortunately....

    There is always a way, especially if various modding communities are anything to go by ;)

    Except for commercial products. Of which this game currently is. Not saying I don’t want that beautiful song in the game, just the unfortunate reality of intellectual property.

    Easy fix would be to allow for avatar's to emit audio from microphones and then its see you at the concert!

    Easier option is to have you host the audio file of the orch stones. let everything download it. Then at the right time over chat "plat the stones music. now". :)

    Easiest option!

    I was the orchestrator for this version of stones, my sister ,Lauremir Elenir in game, or also known as The Graceful Bard on Twitch was the Vocalist and basic arranger. We first obtained permission from David Watson ( Iolo ) to cover his amazing piece. Now we have given the arrangement to the games team. Hopefully they can find a way to release it properly. Until then you can enjoy this piece and the fireworks display on Alleine Dragonfyre's Twitch video here at http://www.twitch.tv/alleinedragonfyre/v/676906550?sr=a&t=468s

    He doesn't actually own the rights to that song. Cool that you got his blessing though .

    Per the information about Stones from this link:
    http://www.vgmpf.com/Wiki/index.php?title=Stones

    Stones is a song composed by David Watson, with lyrics added later by his wife Kathleen Jones. The song ties so closely to the Ultima series because Watson is close friends with the series creator, Richard Garriott, and both he and his wife were in-game characters in the series. The song was first heard in Ultima V: Warriors of Virtue (A2) and has been included in most Ultima games since. While Rule, Britannia! is featured in more Ultima games than any other song, Stones is the most popular original song in the series.

    Lyrics

    Long ago ran the sun on a folk who had a dream
    And the heart and the will and the power:
    They moved earth; they carved stone; moulded hill and channeled stream
    That we might stand on the wide plains of Wiltshire.

    Now men asked who they were, how they built and wonder why
    That they wrought standing stones of such size.
    What was done 'neath our shade? What was pray'ed 'neath our skies
    As we stood on the wyrd plains of Wiltshire.

    Oh what secrets we could tell if you'd listen and be still.
    Rid the stink and the noise from our skirts.
    But you haven't got the clue and perhaps you never will.
    Mute we stand on the cold plains of Wiltshire.

    Still we loom in the mists as the ages roll away
    And we say of our folk, "they are here!"
    That they built us and they died and you'll not be knowing why
    Save we stand on the bare plains of Wiltshire.
