The draft for the new main theme sounds really great.
As for the most prominent Wesnoth musics, IMO it would be Still Another Wanderer, Legends of the North, Over the Northern Mountains, Siege of Laurelmor, and perhaps Travelling Minstrels (though that probably won't fit well...).

For some reason, it has a taste of a Hungarian cavalry military march. (I had to play a LOT of those, so I recognize some elements :D talking about the part around 0:35 - 0:53 ). I like it, especially the second part, around 1:00

My favorite mainline music is Weight of Revenge. Simply epic. I also like Northerners, Northern Mountains, and Siege of Laurelmor as well.
What I'd really like to see to appear for a couple of measures is a hint of the atmoshpere of something like the theme of Empire Earth theme. That, and maybe the theme of Age of Empires 2 are the best tactical game soundtracks in my opinion :)

I love what you've got so far, the concept of referencing as much iconic Wesnoth music as possible seems tricky to pull off without it feeling like a collage, but I feel like you've done a masterful job of that. The only bad part is that it ends just as it gets to the good part :D :hmm:

Bingo :) It just trails off as I have no idea what is going to come next.

I feel like it'd be possible to segue into an Over the Northern Mountains reference at that point.
