Suleiman Theme: The Lawgiver
Suleiman the Magnificent stands on the banks of the Bosphorus, lost in thought. He wrote laws, won wars, and forged an empire. Listen closely to his theme, and you will hear the echoes of Justinian's Hymn, the Incarnation: two men a thousand years apart, who ruled the same city, and walked the same paths.



BONUS! Download the Hymn from the first Justinian series and compare:
