This memorial dedicated to those who perished on the climb. Through their sacrifice Hallownest lasts eternal.
A fanmade arrangement / mashup of Hollow Knight's City of Tears (by Christopher Larkin), and Celeste's Joy of Remembrance (by Lena Raine).
This project took quite a bit of effort, as I knew I wanted to blend a piece from either soundtrack but their styles are rather incongruous. These two both have a melancholy yet slightly uplifting note so I thought they could perhaps fit. The 'style' was borrowed primarily from City of Tears while the overall melody is that of Joy of Remembrance.
To witness secrets sealed, one must endure the harshest punishment. The way I see it, the Mountain can't bring out anything that isn't already in you.
With the five whole upvotes the previous arrangement received in the Hollow Knight Reddit, I decided I'd give it another try.

Given how incompatible these nevertheless grandiose and tragic pieces are, I was pleasantly surprised at the results. But this arrangement was significantly more ambitious by its predecessor, with a lot more flexibility in terms of how the themes were used. Some may like it; some may not. I like it.
