[Song Discussion] The Beginning (Intro Overture)
« on: November 06, 2015, 08:09:53 PM »
(Reviewed by Darkling Nocturnal on The High Lonely Hills).

The song starts with the intro of Frith' Blessing (I go into it later). The melody of the overture can be heard good in the first episode. Opposite to the tv-series, the song raises tremendous. The horn section gets louder and disembogue into the melody of the main theme Bright Eyes, only to continue the great beginning theme. The first highlight on this soundtrack!



Review by Hawkbit, founder of Fiver's Honeycomb:

1 – Watership Down - The Beginning (Overture) : Pieces of this score are used throughout all three seasons of the series. There are heavy influences of brass in this piece, and there are subtle hints of the Bright Eyes song embedded near the middle and end of the track. It’s a very loud and powerful piece.
