The original scores created for Majora’s Mask were composed with the same care and passion as its predecessor, and while many of them, such as the “Song of Healing” and “Stone Tower Theme,” are widely celebrated, one track I feel goes a bit underappreciated is the theme of Tatl and Tael’s reunion.  Because of this, it’s always wonderful to see when someone covers this song. Trend Orchestra does just that with their impressive collection of Majora’s Mask tunes!

Medli’s Melodies is a series in which we choose our favorite songs from The Legend of Zelda franchise, or highlight a special piece of music from the perpetually creative fan community. Music has always such been such an integral component of Zelda games, and we’re here to celebrate that every week!

The song starts out soft and simple, gently telling us the story of the scene. The two fairies reunite after a long, hard journey, and both are safe and sound. A clever nod to the “Fairy Fountain” theme plays in the space between the first and second loop of the song. After that, the song gets stronger with the addition of brass. By the third loop, the choir joins in with the strong bass drums, which gives this piece the final emotional drive it needs to really hit home. The whole time the song plays I keep thinking about the heartwarming conversation the fairy siblings have once they are finally together again.

I’m not sure what it is that drives me to love this song so much. Perhaps it’s the pretty melody or maybe it’s the story behind it. I haven’t gotten to this point of the game yet myself, though, and I was introduced to this song by chance through a Majora’s Mask cover album. However, beautiful covers of this piece encourage me even more so to finish this game and experience it for myself. Until then, I will keep listening to Trend Orchestra’s tremendous work, and I don’t think I’ll be tiring of it any time soon.
