Fellowship Theme

From Ultima Codex
Jump to: navigation, search

The Fellowship Theme appears in Ultima VII whenever the Fellowship is playing a role. This includes the branches themselves and various places (such as the Meditation Retreat) associated with them. The piece thematically portrays the deceitful nature of the Fellowship, initially sounding benevolent in the opening passages but taking a foreboding turn with a perceivably ominous motif, punctuated by the pounding beats of a timpani. It is the first piece of music to be heard in the opening scenes of the game, as Iolo consoles Petre over the horrific murder of Christopher.

The theme is reprised in Ultima VII Part Two at the Fellowship Camp.
