Choicest VGM - VGM #241 - Sid Meier's Colonization - Morelli's Lesson

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

Amiga Soundtrack by: Allister Brimble and Anthony Putson

Here's another military victory tune from Sid Meier's Colonization. This one is called "Morelli's Lesson" and it's yet another track that's adapted from an actual piece of music that's probably more commonly known as "Murillo's Lesson" nowadays. Apparently the melody was found in a number of early 19th century American instrumental tutors and was a staple of fife repertoire and period march collections. It's earliest appearance was in the Thomas Nixon fife manuscript dated around 1776 from the period of the War of Independence (so quite a long time ago). Thanks to The Traditional Tune Archive for the interesting information :).

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.
