Appearances, Learning Locations and Uses
Ocarina of Time
In Ocarina of Time, the "Serenade of Water" is one of the warping songs Link learns as an adult. It is taught to him by Sheik after obtaining the Iron Boots in the Ice Cavern, and enables him to easily warp to Lake Hylia where the Water Temple is located.
In Twilight Princess, the serenade can be heard as the background music for the two instances when Link encounters the ghost of the deceased Zora Queen, Rutela. The aforementioned two moments are when the throne of Zora's Domain is found totally frozen, and after escorting Prince Ralis from Hyrule Castle Town to Kakariko Village.
A serenade, or "serenata" is a musical composition or performance in someone's honor. Serenades are typically calm, light music. In fact, the word Serenade is derived from the word sereno, which means calm, making it fitting to the smooth and relaxing tempo of the "Serenade of Water."
- When it comes to its playable notes, "Serenade of Water" is the shortest melody in the game, and it's also shorter than any song from Majora's Mask.
- The "Serenade of Water" is also the only warp song which is not learnt in the area, or the area directly before its respective temple. Instead, it is learnt in the Ice Cavern, located at the other side of Hyrule from the Water Temple.
