For the most part it seems, this melody is played 
in the background during the verses.

Okay the main ostinato pedal you can hear on this piece is actually played on a harpsichord but there is a way on the guitar that you can emulate that sound.

Hold this chord (use your thumb for the first note) 

e|10                                  e|-----0---------0------0-----------|
B|5                                   B|-----5---------5------5-----------|
G|7                                   G|---------7---7------------7---7---|
D|7                                   D|---7---7---7--------7---7---7---7-|
A|0                                   A|-5----------------5---------------|
E|5   Then play this pattern:         E|-5----------------5---------------|


It's played repeatedly throughout the whole song with the exception of some instrumental breaks with drum fils.
