Forested Temple is the main theme of the Temple of the Ancients in Final Fantasy VII. It features a dark brooding string section with a mysterious flute solo with gentle piano accompaniment. The middle section features pizzicato strings cascading up and down before growing into a rich climax with the flute and piano. The end dies down and leaves the listener in mystery and awe. Thanks to Andrew Steffen, Andrew Stern, Martino Vacca, Joaquim Badia Arumi, and Michael Schiciano who all helped lend a hand in the process. Also thanks to Nobuo Uematsu for inspiring generations of video game music enthusiasts to come!
