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

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
The heart we share
Now the enemy arms destroy me

So Latin "buffs" forgive me :3

Where is the bloody repeat button! I want to sleep to this. The melody is accurate, though the lyrics I cannot say are. I will say that even if it is not accurate you did splendidly. I am now following you, and your wonderful music.

I didn't take Latin scholastically. What I know of it I tried to research on my own, and picked up from my 4 or 5 years in choral programs--so I'm sure it's not perfect.
But thank you for rating it so high anyways! I'm glad you at least enjoyed the sounds.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

This is a pure beauty of the combination of a harp and vocals. It feels like forever ever since I last heard this, and now I don't know what to say than this is what I feel in my heart.

I'm glad to hear it was such a good experience for you. Thank you for leaving a review ^_^

The latin lyrics doesn't mean anything :) But it sounds beautiful so dont care about it.

I love Laruto's theme, and you turned it into something unspeakably beautiful. Oh music. :'|

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?

VGSongbird responds:

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.
