Treble in Monquista, a look into its theme

Before I start, please listen to the music first. I took a recording but all credit goes to Kingsisle Entertainment. Enjoy and listen while you read or listen first then read.

Now, Listening to this music you get a religious and calm vibe with some tense bits. So why is this important? Because it reflects the current state of Monquista! Monquista is currently in a state of periodic turmoil, be it revolution or the holy monquisition. Now lets look at what each part means.

1. The singing.
The singing obviously has religious overtones. The word they are singing 'hallelujah" is a word in Christianity praising god. The fact that this is sung is likely referencing the highly religious Spain/Monquista at the time. The time of the Inquisition. The fact this is the first thing we hear tells us that currently, Monquista is going through a spiritual phase. We have a few quests dealing with this in Monquista, usually the church or a part of it is portrayed as bad and we have to stop them. However this is a slow and calm Hallelujah, possibly symbolizing how this phase isn't stopping any time soon. But the main thing it is saying is that this is a very spiritual world. 

2. The slow and quiet parts and the quick and loud parts.
These parts make up the majority of this song. It could mean a few things, the peace in between the moments of chaos or something like that. But I think it reflects the nature of Monquista and its people. They think themselves superior, act like nothing goes wrong and things like that. However sometimes bad things do happen, and they don't know what to do. This is Monquista, slow and quiet for awhile then when something bad happens its quick and loud compared to what it usually is. This is the part that represents the history of Monquista. 

3. The song overall.
This song overall tells a story. It tells a story of its world and of its people. Through this song we learn this is a religious world where when things go wrong  its fast and important. Monquista seems calm on the outside to those who don't look deep into it, just like this song. Its calm and relaxing, but its hiding the fact that not everything is okay. This is a song that fits well with the story. A story which everything is calm until we expose the lies and overthrow the king and queen. When we come back we learn Gortez won his war and everything seems fine. But when we meet Gortez again he complains about the bickering of the church. Monquista and its music go hand in hand. Something not a lot of worlds in Pirate101 or Wizard101 do. This is what it means, while everything may seem fine, it might not be. Basically, don't judge a book by its cover. 

I hope you enjoyed! Cya in the spiral!
