The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time – Prelude of Light
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a game in The The Legend of Zelda video game series. The game’s story follows Link from being a young boy to a grown adult, where he makes his way through time and adventures in Hyrule, defying Princess Zelda and Ganondorf’s evil-doing along the way. The game was released in 1998 for Nintendo 64, and it received several awards after its release. The music from the game has been featured in several concerts, including “PLAY! Chicago”. The Prelude of Light is one of the songs from that award-winning game; its sheet music can be found below. The Prelude of Light is a song that is played on the ocarina, and it is used in order to get past The Door of Time, where the Master Sword rests. The song can be heard several times throughout the game, as The Prelude of Light becomes integral to The Legend of Zelda’s storyline.
The piece is in 4/4 time, in A Major. The Prelude of Light is a relaxing piece that is easy to perform – it flows equally well in both hands as the octaves transport from one end of the piano to another. The piece follows a slow tempo throughout the song, and it begins with an introduction that features The Legend of Zelda’s signature melody. The Prelude of Light then plays over a gentle, quiet arpeggio in the left hand. The piece is common among beginners and experienced players alike; The Prelude of Light can be easily picked up by those who are new to the piano, while still appealing to more seasoned players. The piece can be found below – it comes from The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time’s soundtrack, which was composed by Koji Kondo and The Legend of Zelda series’ creator, Shigeru Miyamoto. The song is also available on Nintendo’s website for The Legend of Zelda: The Ocarina of Time 3D. The piano sheet music itself can be found below the video. The file is saved in PDF, which can be opened by most browsers and word processors. The video was created by VGMix, a Youtube channel that provides The Legend of Zelda sheet music for piano.
