Does Morrowind have the best score (Music) in the fantasy genre?

I love the muisc from this game, and it always gives me a rush of nostalgia, and if fitted/fits so perfectly with the game itself, and personally, I think now game has since come close to that title theme, I was just wondering if others shared my opinion or had something to add.. What is your favourite piece of music from a fantasy themed game?  
If I had to describe it in one word, I think that it be Grand.

Too many to choose from, but The Witcher had a pretty great soundtrack.

I actually think that Morrowind had better "epic" sounds, but Oblivion had a lot better atmospheric music. But, then again, I think that just comes from the advances in technology.

I've never finished either game because I totally don't understand DnD, but Icewind Dale 1 & 2 have great music.

Yes. The opening theme is my favorite piece of music ever. 
Props to TheSeductiveMoose for suggesting The Witcher. It has a pretty good soundtrack as well, but nothing is even comparable to Morrowind.

Warcraft 3 would beg to differ.

I thought the soundtrack was really, really short? In Greg Kasavin's video review he said the same couple of tracks play over and over again throughout the entire game

As far as fantasy RPG soundtracks goes Morrowind is very hard to beat.

I'd go with Icewind Dale II if I had to pick one.
