Legend of Zelda Song Performed on Wine Glasses

In my own geeky way, I find this festive. Here's a man performing the "Song of Healing" from the video game The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask...on wine glasses. Using tight choreography, he multiplies himself and plays five parts simultaneously. Lovely and weird.

More from this guy ("Sp0ntanius") after the jump.

From the YouTube description:

The "Song of Healing" is a song from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. It is the second song Link learns after reclaiming the Ocarina of Time. After returning from the third day, Link visits the Happy Mask Salesman in Clock Town's Clock Tower. Upon seeing Link got his ocarina back, he conjures an organ out of nowhere and teaches Link the "Song of Healing", removing the Deku curse on Link. A slower version of the song is played in the area beneath the Clock Tower and a faster version is used as the theme song of the Happy Mask Salesman.

The "Song of Healing" heals troubled spirits and souls, turning them into masks. It is an essential song, used to obtain the Deku Mask, the Goron Mask, the Zora Mask, Kamaro's Mask, and the Gibdo Mask. It can also be used to repair a broken sign like "Zelda's Lullaby" does in The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. It is one of the songs Wolf Link howls during a cut-scene with the Hero's Shade in The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.

Link can play the "Song of Healing" on the Ocarina of Time by playing Left-C, Right-C, Down-C, Left-C, Right-C, Down-C. The actual pitches of the notes translate as follows: B, A, F, B, A, F. Interestingly, the notes for the "Song of Healing" are the exact same as "Saria's Song" when played backwards.

If you liked that, how about the Palace Theme from Zelda II: The Adventure of Link? This brings back memories.
