This song has always been in the back of my mind as a project piece; it's melody line was so beautiful along with the harp, but because synthesized vocals were used, it was hard to get past a choppy feel. I decided that while I had some spare time, I would arrange a choral/instrumental rendition that did the piece more justice.
This is written for a Woman's Chorus (SSAA) with two soloists, and an orchestra's string section.

I hope you enjoy it; I certainly enjoyed making it :D

Lyrics:
Ad Idem (Of the same mind)
Ad Infinitum (Without Limit)
In Memoriam (In memory)
Cor Unum (One heart)
Vi et Armis (By force and arms)
Vale (Farewell)

My Latin translations may not be exact, but this was what I was going for:

We share one mind
Time cannot bind us
Remember
The heart we share
Now the enemy arms destroy me
Farewell

So Latin "buffs" forgive me :3

I love this song with all my heart. I heard this song back two years ago or so, and I instantly fell in love with it. I can't believe this song is not an entire 5 stars! The lyrics alone make my eyes tear, and the rhythm is what lets them go. Its a beautiful song, I just hate the fact that people only find this song first if they went to youtube for it.
I think I remember you saying that it was your voice that you used for your version, do you have any more songs like this or you have sung?

I have a few; I'd love to more once I get the right inspiration for them ^_^
I'm glad you kept looking and found it here.

Very soothing, definitely improves the original. I'm writing my thesis to this.

Good luck on your thesis!
