[Song Discussion] Winter on Watership Down
« on: November 06, 2015, 08:27:50 PM »
(Reviewed by Darkling Nocturnal on The High Lonely Hills).

Winter is coming to Watership Down. That is underscored by the following songs. Winter on Watership Down is definitely a christmas song with it's background bells. It could be very joyful in the cold season. Powerful arranged by Mike Batt, this song creates an amazing atmosphere, without to disclaim the dramatic art, that distinguish the series and the soundtrack.

Again, loud and calm parts are alternating and create a great dynamic. Coeval, the middle part of the Winter Song can be heard and so, the listener gets prepared for the following song. Of course, this song must end with a pretentious finale.



Review by Hawkbit, founder of Fiver's Honeycomb:

12 – Winter on Watership Down : As evidenced by the title, this piece was meant for one part of the series only, and that is the winter episodes in season two. Sleigh bells in the early portion of the track along with strings and trumpet give the feel of a snowy environment. The piece slows down into another theme played by brass instruments. It’s an instrumental take of Winter Song which was not used vocally in the series.
