Wind Waker - Laruto's Lament

Author Comments

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


Don't Stop

Yet again, you've not only knocked my socks off, but knocked me straight out of them. Your voice is a masterpiece that just needs to be put to music such as this, and it creates a most wonderful sound. Now I loved this piece just as much as Zelda's Lullaby, but I wish you would have put more lyrics to it instead of repeating, don't get me wrong though, this is still amazing. 9.5/10 You are an amazing artist who should contact someone who could put your voice beyond what you've been doing, I'd miss hearing works like these, but couldn't wait to hear the things you'd do. Once again, keep that beautiful voice going

Lol Thanks so much for taking the time to listen to my arrangements; I appreciate it ^_^


Great song! Definitely worth the rating of 10/10 and 5/5.

VGSongbird responds:

Thank you ^_^

When I heard the original song...

It evoked many emotions from me, and made me feel like Link, like how badly we needed to stop Ganondorf from hurting anyone else, but this made me feel like Laruto. I thought that lyrics would ruin the song, because in the original it spoke for itself, but making the lyrics latin it made more ancient and awesome

Thank You ^_^ I believe choral works rightfully belong in Latin.
And thanks for listening to my arrangement.

<I) relaxing

love your voice feel great to my ears

VGSongbird responds:



i love this... your voice is incredible! ^_^

being honest, your voice is very soothing, and makes me feel like falling asleep.

...that was a compliment, just to make sure that is clear, i understand that "putting people to sleep" isnt always a good thing when it comes to certain things. >_>

again, lovely voice... hope to hear it more often.

VGSongbird responds:

Thank You. I'm flattered ^_^
