For me Medieval 1 had the best music - captured the atmosphere amazingly and complemented the artistic style.
I do listen to RTW's soundtrack with fond nostalgia too - especially the Carthaginian campaign music.
some other cinematic music. Not saying that its proper as a game soundtrack but I felt the need to share it. Also some grandiose scenery from Imperivum II and III
However after listening to the music in the new rally point and the Battle of Carthage video(I think that's also Beddow's work) I think its quite good. It's similar to Empire's music but with more brass. Not bad Beddow; not bad at all

There is a sample of the music at the end of Rally Point 10 (starts without people talking at 2:41):
The Shortest Horror Story in the World:
The last man on Earth sat in a room. There was a knock on the door...
It's pretty good. It reminds me of Trevor Jones' track, "The Ambush/Waterfall" for The Last of the Mohicans.
E.S Posthumus have great dramatic soundtracks. One of the brothers behind E.S Posthumus was an archaeology student, hence the song titles like 'Pompeii' and so forth. Unfortunately I think E.S Posthumus no longer exist as one of the brothers died.
I'd have hoped that Jeff Van Dyck would have come back for Rome II, but Richard might do a good job. I didn't enjoy his Empire soundtrack, as a matter of fact I usually turned it off during battles as the bombastic battle music on a constant loop annoyed me. His campaign and menu music was pretty good though. So I'll keep an open mind on Rome 2's music, and not judge it till I've heard it.
