There's a small piece of music that I really loved in this series. I guess it's part of the score. I don't think it has a name, and it's really short, but I'm sure it occurs a few times in season 1 at least.

An example of where it occurs is in Season 1, Episode 8: Escape from Efrafa. At 06:22 when Primrose says "We can help, but we've got to be ready when our chance comes. Keep watch, I'm going to check on the escape tunnel."  :primrose

It's only a small tune, but it adds a nice touch.

I like that short musical cue.  Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to be included in the official soundtrack release...but it does show up a few other times in the series, generally when Primrose is around (for example in the scenes with Campion in S1E13 "Kidnapped").

Acacia Heartstrings, thank you  :blackberry4 Unfortunately it's not in any of the soundtrack. I guess they didn't consider it a long enough piece to include.

Chipster Roo, I found the part you described. I never put two and two together, but it could be a little theme for Primrose.  :primrose  

There's another nice bit of music that wasn't in the soundtrack. It's a calm playful song, and occurs a lot. (season 1, episode 3 at 03:23 for example.) I think a human whistled the song at one point too.

I remember hearing that song quite a lot, including when Pipkin was acting like a baby in The Roundabout :pipkin2 You may be right about a human whistling...I think it was the police officer in The Secret of Redstone Warren?

Can you guys name other tracks that weren't included in the soundtrack? I was trying to keep note while rewatching, and I got a few I thought. Not 100% sure since I've not checked.
Copied straight from my notes:

WSD11 unused track at 19min
12 at 10min
16 min xmas episode
