In addition to winning the Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalist(s) award, his debut album, Calling All Dawns (that features the song as well) picked up an award for Best Classical Crossover Album. For all those who haven’t played the game yet, we’ve included the Swahili track below that’s a translation to a popular Christian prayer, Our Father.

Major props going out to Christopher Tin once again for accomplishing something so significant for the video game industry.
