I've always loved this song, it's just a gorgeous melody, a pretty haunting lyrics. Just the way I like it.

Anyway I spent a few hours today adding a few layers of my own. Some woodwinds, some strings, and just a tad bit of choirs.

I can spend days, maybe weeks on this piece but sadly I don't have much more time so I wanted to both spread awareness of this song and do my own little thing on the side.

Lyrics (copied from original song)
Mile by mile and day by day,
The Lonely Bard goes on.
Through the wind and rain he makes his way
And sings his mournful song

To every village high and low
He went to sing his tale of woe.
He never had a place to call home
And wandered through the hills all alone

From verdant spring to bleak chilly fall,
He followed naught but his muse's call.
No shelter had he from the bitter cold
And perished in Winter's icy hold.

I see him in my dreams and hear his cry,
Another sleepless night goes by.
His tune, it haunts my every waking hour!
No solace can I find from his power

Long ago and far away
Upon a frozen moor,
He lost his life one tragic day
And haunts me evermore

Thank you for the review! Remember to drop by the original and give her some props for a song well done :D!

I thoroughly enjoyed this piece. I loved the original but then you added my favorite instruments. I would tell you the story I wrote for this but it's a book. That one you would have to buy.

MaestroRage responds:

One time I wrote a 43 page short novel from the inspiration of one song. That song was life changing for me haha. I'm glad to hear you were inspired to write yourself drawn from this song. Thanks for the review!

This was very great! I enjoyed listening to it and will for sure listen to it again.
