'Angels & Demons' is a 2009 American film adaptation of Dan Brown's novel by the same name. It is the sequel to The Da Vinci Code, even though the novel Angels & Demons was published first and takes place before the novel The Da Vinci Code. Filming took place in Rome, Italy, and the Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City, California. Tom Hanks reprises the lead role of Robert Langdon, while director Ron Howard, producer Brian Grazer, composer Hans Zimmer and screenwriter Akiva Goldsman also return.

# Title Length Key Scenes/Notes
1 "160 BPM" 6:42 A fast-paced (160 beats per minute, hence the title) track written in the unusual time signature of 7/8 employing many choral, percussive and orchestral layers. It is featured during the scenes at the Chigi Chapel, or Earth altar, as well as in the end credits.
2 "God Particle" 5:20 An opening violin solo of Langdon's theme by Joshua Bell leads into a heavily synthesized track that is named for the near-mythical Higgs Boson, a foundational element of Quantum Mechanics. It plays at the very beginning of the film, and during the antimatter creation scene.
3 "Air" 9:08 A lengthy, mostly-action suite that appears almost exactly as heard in the film during the scenes on St. Peter's Square in which the second cardinal is branded with the word "Air". The first party however, plays during the locking in of the conclave and the middle part when Langdon and Vetra discover that the Camerlengo has burned himself.
4 "Fire" 6:51 An action piece featuring demonic choral effects that plays during the scenes at Santa Maria della Vittoria, or Fire church.
5 "Black Smoke" 5:45 Plays during the scenes at the Castel del Angelo, though it is named for the black smoke that is sent from the Sistine Chapel when the cardinals do not reach a consensus.
6 "Science and Religion" 12:27 A long, emotional suite that heavily features Bell's violin, soft organ and choir, performing a variation of Langdon's theme, before moving into the climactic music surrounding the camerlengo's sacrificial flight in the helicopter. Its name derives from the central conflict of the film.
7 "Immolation" 3:38 A slow, plodding piece which plays during the Camerlengo's suicide.
8 "Election By Adoration" 2:12 A piece dominated by organ and solo violin, played at the end of the film when Cardinal Baggia is elected Pope.
9 "503" 2:14 A variation of the Chevaliers de Sangreal piece from the soundtrack for The Da Vinci Code for solo violin, organ and orchestra, played during the end credits. Its name derives from the numerical code leading to Galileo's Diagramma text.
10 "H2O (Bonus Track)" 1:52 A short track featuring a troubled variation of Langdon's theme, played when he rescues Cardinal Baggia from drowning in the Fountain of Four Rivers (hence the name).
