Where can I find instrumental music as joyous and similar?

I really like that kind of music but I wonder if there are any bands that make instrumental music like this that isn't boring or depressing like Chopin?

This is the best I can do, I don't know, I'm not a big Iced Earth fan, but I do love that song. It's not quite as power metally instrumentally, though, no like, nonrock instruments.

I like really strong instrumental songs with choirs and all that, the kind of songs that make you feel like saying "Ahhhh, epic"

The closest thing I can think of is Mike Oldfield: Tubular Bells

That sort of stuff is right up my street too. I have a tune in my head very similar, with the choral part as well, but I can't place it. I have a copy somewhere and I'll keep trying to think of where it might be. A combination of rock (heavy metal even) and electronica, with classical undertones is euphoric. Do you like Muse? Some of their stuff is like that. And how about this one by Vangelis: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_gHZ2eoOk-I.

War of the Worlds came to mind too. But I'd totally forgotten about it by the time I'd scanned through all my synthesizer mix CDs.

I've just found this: www.youtube.com/watch?v=mNOfJ-aOqCs
I've got to listen to some more of this guy's music.
