A cover I committed myself to doing, and one which I completed over the course of three days. "Diwanit Bugale" is Breton for "May the Children Be Born". Breton is the regional language of the province of Brittany in France, where one of my bandmates, Christopher Tracey (Merlyne), hails from.

Merlyne introduced the song to me shortly after Kingdom of Herts, our band, was formed. I took a liking to it (and the lyrics) and I held, for a while, the thought of covering it. Today, the cover is finished.

Sequenced on FL Studio 10.
Vocals done on Audacity with an integrated PC mic.

Original song by Dan Ar Braz.
Represented France in Eurovision 1996.
The author does not claim ownership of this song.

Moving and deep.

Could you not have fit the lyrics in the comments section? Quite a shame, as to have the support of the lyrics, this piece would have truly benefited. Still, a good sound overall, lyrics or no.

The hornpipe / flute makes the piece sound vaguely oriental, which is strange, to be honest in the intro, having read your notes about Breton France. When the lyrics came into full swing, I was a little disappointed that the vocalists didn't quite hit the harmony (I think it was more an issue with the backing vocals, but only minor, to be honest), but the balance of the softly spoken track was well stated.

The guitar and piano could have easily overpowered the piece, but they stayed nicely in check, backed by soft percussion, to compliment the whole ensemble, giving rise to a piece that should bring a tear to the eye of some listeners, if used on the right sort of film / animation.

I was the vocalist as well as the arranger, and I'm aware my vocals were off key in places. Thank you for pointing that out. : )

Also, thank you for the feedback. I'll put the lyrics (and hopefully a better version of this song) at some point, most likely after my exams are over. No promises though, but I'll try!

I like how the song has a really simple and atmospheric tone to it. Has a sad feeling to it at the same time though.

The vocals are light and sound incredibly dreamy at the same time as if lulling you off to sleep and let your mind rest at the same time. The piano is calm and plays a soft melody that helps the vocals deliver their message. The violin is nice too and I enjoyed hearing it. The acoustic guitar sounds beautiful.

Light use of drums makes them feel like they are meant to be more dramatic. Has a nice classical feel to it and the flute also sounds pretty.

Overall, very calm, pretty song.

A much simpler of version of a beautiful song, but I reckon it works. Nice job on it! :D
