I’m trying to remember exactly when I was playing Final Fantasy X for the first time. It came out when I was in Grade 10, though I first saw it when my cousin showed it to me at my grandmother’s house in Gimli, the town where I grew up.

I know that I’ve posted this before, but this version is different and it celebrates the completion of a project that I’ve been working on for quuuuuuuuite some time. But first the music… I’ve heard just about every FF6 live performance/arrangement/orchestration on the web and I was SO happy to finally find this. … Continue reading VGM Wednesday – Ending Theme (Orchestrated) from Final Fantasy VI
