Are there any Zelda fans out there who also find the Hyrule Castle music from "TLoZ: Breath of the Wild" to sound familiar somehow?
-- Well, you're right!
This is practically a medley of the most beautiful themes from other Zelda titles, including the Face Shrine music from "Link's Awakening", the overworld theme from "A Link to the Past" and a "flutified" and "organized" version of Zelda's lullaby.
My "by-ear" transcription on the one hand tries to stick to the orchestrated version from the OST as close as possible, but on the other hand, I had to alter things a bit, since I was neither capable nor willing to include every aspect/instrument, which a full orchestra could add.
For those who own a 7.1 surround system, an 8-channel FLAC file can be picked up here to get an impression of what it will sound like in my living room:
