In October of 2004, a tiny project emerged with a lofty goal: to reproduce the entire soundtrack of Ocarina of Time with a more orchestral sound. A little over 5 years later, that project — Zelda Reorchestrated —  has completed their goal, and are offering us a little Christmas present: 83 beautiful, re-orchestrated tracks for free.

All the great, nostalgia-inducing tracks are there: the Lost Woods, Lon Lon Ranch, Hyrule Field, all of the Ocarina songs, and even the iconic chest-opening sound. The fond memories recalled while listening to Zelda Reorchestrated are a testament both to the staying power of the original tracks themselves, as well as the wonderful work that the ZREO community has done to reproduce them.

Sadly, at the time of this writing, the Zelda Reorchestrated site is down, probably due to the overwhelming response to the Ocarina of Time project, but there’s a handy torrent available here.
