Well, sorry to be a bit of a wet blanket, but the use of Schifrin's quite
well-known and probably most recognizable tune may just be a large copyright
infringement, even in Switzerland.
CAREFUL here !
If the games are to be publicly played/broadcast -- the team of people
behind the composer could come down you on quite heavily.
Possibly contact the living composer (born Argentina 1932)
And request a fair-use contract of the tune (bits or not).....there will be
a fee I assure you.

Thanks, it does feature the "harpsichord solo" but what I'm looking for
Is something without the funky bassline and jazz drums etc, something
That could have been played on 18th century instruments only.
I know it's kinda strange but since the game is following a certain
Pattern of anachronism (18th century spies acting like in a modern
Espionnage movie), I'd like the session's "opening theme" to follow that
Type of thinking (18th century instrument(s) playing a modern theme).
Kinda of like the opposite of all the bands that "modernize" classical
Pieces by adding drums, funky basslines etc.
