Description

We have already discussed and decided (in various forum discussions) that we will be able to ship around items by mail in the game to post offices. The corresponding rider on arrival will blow his post horn in best traditional mannor. We need the post horn melody. Luckily, Wikipedia has us covered (source):

Posthorn-Noten

The melody Nr. 1 is sufficient. Hey, I even played that one on my Ocarina today! Still, you probably don't want that I record it myself. I do not own a post horn anyway.

Copyright-wise, this is long expired. There is nothing to worry. The notes are those the Prussian postillons starting 1828 played at their arrival.

Maybe something for SiggyPop or refi64. Given that the notes are already there, this should be easy to transform to the audio sequence of a post horn (which is a metal horn, go read Wikipedia on the topic).

OK, quintus, :)
if I have time, I can record that. It probably wasn't necessary to specify a time signature in the past, but as far as I can see it is a 3/4 or 6/8 bar.

But if you mean ... ;)

As per the Wikimedia data, the note sheet is from this source:

Handwörterbuch des Postwesens, Hrsg. Bundesministerium für das Post-
und Fernmeldewesen, 2. völlig umgearbeitete Auflage, Frankfurt am
Main, 1953, Seite 527

If by chance your local library has this rather antique book, you
might be able to find more information in it. If not, do not waste
time on trying to find it. It is not required to reproduce the
melody 100% historically correct. Interpret to your liking.

Thank you for your efforts once more!
