Listen to Yasunori Mitsuda’s annual Christmas arrangement

A track from Mitsuda’s non-game work

Every Christmas season composer Yasunori Mitsuda streams a holiday arrangement on his Procyon Studio home page. In past years we’ve heard arrangements of everything from Chrono Cross’s “Dimension Break” (recently mentioned in our top ten list for songs to listen to during the holidays) to a track from his work on Lime Odyssey.

This year we get a lovely arrangement from the amazing kiRite album, a body of work that Mitsuda wrote to accompany an original story book by Masato Kato, the scenario and script writer for Chrono Trigger and Chrono Cross. The album is fantastic, and comes highly recommend, but this solo piano arrangement of the recurring theme of kiRite is certainly worth a listen. If only it were available for download!

Head over to Procyon Studios and check it out before Christmas is through and let us know what you think. Happy holidays!
