    Mission: The Covenant

    You'll come to a section where you enter a Hornet, and are asked to destroy two scarabs. Destroy the scarabs but do not exit your hornet. From this location, you will want to fly up the spire and land high up on the left hand side on a metal beam. Once on the beam, you'll have to walk up the ramp to the very end of the beam. Here you will hear the music begin to play, and the achievement will unlock.

    All of the other solutions posted here are good; I just wanted to clarify two pieces of information for people looking to get this as quickly as possible.
    1. Load the level Covenant on Easy at Rally Point Charlie, then drive to just before the spot where the Hornets are dropped off.
    2. Once you get into the Hornet fly straight up to the spot shown in the other solutions. You DO NOT need to destroy the Scarabs or anything else for that matter.

    Find the music cue on the The Covenant, in the location where you kill two scarabs, once you've taken both out remain in your hornet. Then follow the video below:

    Found the video by chance when looking for a solution for this achievement. I don't take credit for the video.

    Mission: The Covenant - Dirge of Magrigal Egg: You can find this egg rather easily. Near the very end of the level, when you’re approaching the large tripod-like structure after the fight with the scarabs (shortly after finishing Phantom Hunter above), you can fly up onto a thin grey ledge midway up on the left side. Land your Hornet here and follow the ledge around to the left as it slopes upwards higher up the structure. At the very top of this ledge, where you can’t go any higher on foot, you’ll hear the Madrigal score kick in and the achievement should unlock. A visual showcase for those that prefer:
