Mass Effect 3 – An End, Once and For All

Another highly-requested song from Mass Effect 3: An End, Once and For All. I haven’t played through the game yet, and although I hear a few not-so-great things about the ending, the music is fantastic.

Here’s some free sheet music for it. Everything © BioWare.

    Hi Seabass,

    I’ve just finished Mass Effect 3. The weird thing is that this beautiful melody persisted in my head for days! Your performance is totally pleasing to hear! Good work! Oh btw, I’m unable to download the sheet music in pdf. Can you fix it asap? Thanks! :)

    Thanks a lot, Sebastian.

    I love this title and it sounds very nice.
    Your sheets are very useful and easy enough to play for a piano-newbie like me…^^

    (Immer weiter so…)

    Are you still planning on doing “A Future for the Krogan?” That one would be really fun to play.

    Well now you have to do the Extended Cut version :)
    Great job by the way! Beautiful songs, masterfully arranged!

      I would absolutely love this as well!

      It transitions out of piano so I’m not sure how this would work. The ending is less frantic and much happier, so I think it would be an even better piece.

    Don’t let the opinions of the nay-sayers and their bad “reviews” stop you… the whole trilogy is wonderful, especially since the addition of the extended cut dlc for ME3. And the music is incredible throughout the entire series of games. The talent required to create such an amazing imersive story, from design to music and everything in between; just awesome. Every time I finish the trilogy, I tell myself I’m going to go play something else, and then I start over again :) And the music is a huge part of the experience. This song is amazing; so emotional. Thanks for sharing!

    Hey, brilliant arrangement! You’ve really captured the piece. I’m printing it off as I type. Nice performance too; just make sure you bring out the tune ;)

    This is my second favourite piece from the ME3 soundtrack; that’s behind I’m Proud Of You. Any chance you might do an arrangement of that?

    Also, I personally prefer the EC version of An End to the original, particularly the ending. Might be worth looking into…?

    Great work!
    My only qualm is that the ending (last two bars) needs a bit of work. The ending in the original song was melodramatic enough with its smooth transition to an augmented chord, but with a piano alone that transition is not so smooth and sounds too out of place.
    I would recommend having a listen to the Extended Cut version (they modified the end of the piece and added a bit in the middle, as it was a longer cutscene) – it ends on a major instead, making it a lot easier to reproduce on piano.
    I’ve uploaded that track here for your convenience (in OGG format, straight from the game files):

    Thank you so much for sharing this. I stopped playing piano years ago, but this actually got me back into it – loving every moment of it. I also love your rendition of “I Was Lost Without You”.

    On a related note, I am also trying to find piano sheet music for Vangelis’ “Memories of Blue” from the Oceanic album. I can find Bladerunner’s “Memories of Green” everywhere, but “Memories of Blue” remains elusive. Any chance you have sheet music for it or know where I can buy it?
