Towne
Composer Ken Arnold
Released 1985-09-18
Loops Yes
This page is for the Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar song, for more titles see Town.

Towne plays in each of the towns throughout Britannia and is the second song in the opening demo in most of the PC ports of Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar. Although the audio quality is too primitive to faithfully emulate any instruments, the song sounds like it was intended to be played on an organ or harpsichord. The song has a slower tempo, and is pretty downbeat.
