[Song Discussion] Fantasia on a Flying Theme
« on: November 06, 2015, 08:22:14 PM »
(Reviewed by Darkling Nocturnal on The High Lonely Hills).

A very calm song that picks up the Thank You, Stars theme. Quasi the classical instrumental interpretation of the song. It sounds clichéd, but appropriate to the song title, you can say: A song to sail along. Did I say calm? Of course, Mike Batt couldn't resist and during the end, a powerful wind section finish this song grandiose.



Review by Hawkbit, founder of Fiver's Honeycomb:

8 – Fantasia on a Flying Theme : This is a soft piece played by flutes, clarinets, and strings, and is used many times over in the entire series. Thank You, Stars as an instrumental reprise makes up a bulk of this song’s playtime. A short rendition of this piece was used over the third season’s credits.
