The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind Official Soundtrack was released in 2002 with music composed by Jeremy Soule. It is the first game in the series to feature his music, as well as what would become known as The Elder Scrolls theme in Nerevar Rising.
Upon release, the soundtrack was met with mixed reviews. In 2003, it was nominated for the category of "Outstanding Achievement in Original Music Composition" at the 6th Annual Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences' Interactive Achievement Awards but lost to Medal of Honor: Frontline.
