"Terra Nova" (Eng. "New World" or "New Land") is the official musical theme of Civilization V: Brave New World. It was composed by Michael Curran and orchestrated by Geoff Knorr, and plays on the game's main menu. It is based on the Latin text of chapter 21 of the Book of Revelation as found in the Vulgate; appropriately, it is sung in Latin.

Lyrics Edit

Original (Latin) lyrics English translation
Chorus:

Vidi terra novum et caelum, Sanctum civitatum.

Chorus:

I saw a new earth and heaven, the holy city.

Solo Tenor:

Vidi caelum novum, Terra novam a Deo

Primum caelum abiit, et prima terra abiit

Terra novum et caelum a Deo

Deo descendentem, a Deo.

Terra novam, caelum novum,

Novam Ierusalem, novam Ierusalem, Terra novam,

Terra novam et caelum

Afferent Gloriam honorem gentium in illam

Prima terra abiit

Terra novam et caelum et mare iam non est

Terra novam et caelum, Prima terra abiit

Terra novum et caelum

Terra novum et caelum

O gloria, gloria

Terra novam et caelum, quae prima abierunt

Terra gloria

amen.

Solo Tenor:

I saw a new heaven, a new earth from God

The first heaven and the first earth passed away.

A new heaven and earth from God

Descended from God, O God.

A new earth, a new heaven,

The new Jerusalem, a new Jerusalem, a new land,

A new heaven and earth,

They will bring the glory and honor of all the nations to it

The First earth passed away

A new Heaven and earth, where the sea was no more

The first earth passed away

A new heaven and earth

A new heaven and earth

Oh glory, glory

The new earth and heaven, the first which passed away

the land of glory

Amen.

TriviaEdit

  • It is possible to hear this music on the menu screens of vanilla Civilization V and Gods & Kings. This usually happens when you revert to the older versions of the game via the BNW menu screens; when you enter the older version of the game you have reverted to, BNW's menu music will initially continue to play.
