Choicest VGM - VGM #232 - Sid Meier's Colonization - Bonny Morn



Original Soundtrack composed by: Jeffery L. Briggs, Ken Lagace and Roland J. Rizzo

Amiga Soundtrack by: Allister Brimble and Anthony Putson

Like "Jine the Cavalry", "Bonny Morn" happens to be another track in the game Sid Meier's Colonization that is based off an actual piece of historical music (I suspect this is going to become a common occurrence as I explore this soundtrack again). The real piece's name happens to be "Bonny at Morn" and is included in a book called "Northumbrian Minstrelsy" which is a collection of 18th and 19th century folk songs and pipe music from the North-Eastern part of England. It's definitely a beautiful piece and one that is popular with the fans as I've heard quite a few remakes and remixes of this classic track.

EDIT (15/10/2016): A fellow YouTube user +Plastiware has alerted me to the fact that despite me originally advertising these tracks as the Amiga version of the soundtrack, it's probably not entirely accurate. I originally marked these as the Amiga version due to the source MP3s I used stating Allister Brimble and Anthony Putson as the composers, but when comparing these tracks to Amiga versions of the soundtrack on YouTube and then comparing it to a DOS CD version, it seems these are most likely from the DOS CD version. Apologies for the mistake.
