Simo Sakari Aaltonen Two versions of the inspirational “Rainbow Bridge”, the Celtic campfire celebration “Knees Up”, the wistful, contemplative “Highlands” track, the various moods of “Illumination”, “Rainbow”, “The Sunken Isle”, and the impressive “The River”, plus the foreboding, imposing, timeless vistas suggested by “Rhea’s Garden” and “Stars” (for a breathtaking moment and sequence in the game) — capped by “Child”, the beautiful ending — two flute melodies joining in harmony to create the perfect ending. Favorite track: Rhea's Garden.
