Original soundtrack composed by: Jeffery L. Briggs
Here's one of my favourite Civ themes: the Roman theme! I just love the fanfare whenever you take over a city in the ancient era and you can see all your Roman legionnaires marching in. Ah, good times. The track is also covered in Civilization II and is also known as "Augustus Rises".
The music was recorded through DOSBOX and consequently this is DOSBOX's emulation of OPL3 I believe, the FM synthesis sound chip used in a lot of old Soundblaster cards.
