It’s refreshing to hear a brass cover, and the playing is done quite well, too. I think it captures the song’s beauty fairly well, even for just a euphonium and a trumpet.
I haven’t actually watched the series yet and wasn’t really planning to, but who knows, maybe this is enough to give me an excuse to watch it; either way, I’d wait until the series is done. (EDIT: I finished the first season on January 21, 2016) Anyway, I didn’t find out about this from watching the series, but rather as a result of a big spike in this site’s page views in the last couple of days:
I did a little investigating and found out that the source of the majority of these views was a post by Eliana (glassdestroyer) on Tumblr and its numerous reblogs, so a special thanks goes out to Eliana! I fixed up the post a bit, most notably replaced the broken video, because this is probably going to be the bulk of the traffic for the next week.
Incidentally, you all set a new record of 201 page views on the 27th. Congratulations, and thank you!
