Wind Waker - Laruto's Lament

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


Just awesome! Please go on and make more titles/songs like this. And don't mind about the latin - Nobody speaks proper latin except the pope - and I just can't image he surf the internet :D

Lol could you imagine though? Getting critiqued by the pope? Lol XD

Thanks for listening!

So incredibly heavenly. This NEEDS to be used on an official Zelda title. I've been listening to this non-stop! xD I wish you had a lot more of your voice in other Zelda songs.

Wow! Thanks! ^_^

What a stupid song title! Fail! Or that's what I was thinking when I saw the song... It's beautiful. I almost cried. I can't think of a way to make it better without disrupting a seemingly impeccable, but quite fragile and soft majesty. I love songs on this website. \(^O^)/
