Choicest VGM - VGM #453 - Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura - Villages

Screenshot from Arcanum

Track composed by Ben Houge

This music plays when you visit the numerous rustic villages that are scattered across Arcanum. I really like this track as it's rather uplifting and charming, like a breath of fresh air now that you're in the countryside and away from the smoggy dreariness of the industrial Tarant.

The Arcanum wiki lists four villages that you can visit in Arcanum: the Bedokaan Village (a settlement run by a tribe of lizard people that have taken an elf hostage), the Isle of Despair, the Village of the Ashlag Tribe and Vooriden.

This is probably the last track I'll feature from the Arcanum soundtrack so it's probably worth mentioning the musicians who make up the string quartet. They are: Leonid Keylin (Violin I), Kathy Stern (Violin II), Vincent Comer (Viola) and Susan Williams (Cello).
