I Sit beside the Fire:
(The Fellowship of the Ring, Book 2, Chapter 3: The Ring Goes South)


I sit beside the fire and think
of all that I have seen,
of meadow-flowers and butterflies
in summers that have been;

Of yellow leaves and gossamer
in autumns that there were,
with morning mist and silver sun
and wind upon my hair.

Fourth track from Elbereth's only album, ...and other reasons.
Надеемся не последний weekend в Евразии.
Me reciting the elvish poem "A Elbereth Gilthoniel" written by J. R. R. Tolkien. It's actually the first time I read something in Sindarin, I'm sorry for any mistakes!
It's a pretty song, I almost cried after I finished making this...and by the way, Marille isn't a Mary-Sue...otherwise you'd be a mary-sue-OH BURN!

This is the silent version...as in Legolas doesn't talk at all...but don't worry my lovelies, he will soon...

Tolkien's poetry put to music

The translation is not by me! It belongs to ambar-eldaron.com, a wonderful site full of Quenya translations and texts. Give it a look when you have time!
The original poem belongs to J. R. R. Tolkien. The music is taken from the complete recording of the LoTR soundtrack.

I know my voice is strange, but I tried to do my best in this one. I love this hymn, both in english and in Sindarin and in Quenya.
Lyrics by J. R. R. Tolkien (from The Lord of the Rings), composed/performed by Petri Tikka.

A Elbereth Gilthoniel
silivren penna míriel
o menel aglar elenath!
Na-chaered palan-díriel
o galadhremmin ennorath,
Fanuilos, le linnathon
nef aear, sí nef aearon!

"O! Elbereth who lit the stars, from glittering crystal slanting falls with light like jewels from heaven on high the glory of the starry host. To lands remote I have looked afar, and now to thee, Fanuilos, bright

Fanuilos heryn aglar
Rîn athar annún-aearath,
Calad ammen i reniar
Mi ‘aladhremmin ennorath!
A Elbereth Gilthoniel
I chîn a thûl lin míriel
Fanuilos le linnathon
Ne ndor haer thar i aearon.
A elin na gaim eglerib
Ned în ben-anor trerennin
Si silivrin ne pherth ‘waewib
Cenim lyth thílyn thuiennin.
A Elbereth Gilthoniel
Men echenim sí derthiel
Ne chaered hen nu ‘aladhath
Ngilith or annún-aearath.
Эльфийская красота,печаль и надежда...А Элберет Гилтониэль!

A Elbereth Gilthoniel,
silivren penna miriel
o menel aglar elenath!
Na-chaered palan-diriel
o galadhremmin ennorath,
Fanuilos, le linnathon
ve linde le ca Valimar
nef aear, si nef aearon!
A much better version of my first upload of this original song, instruments are sequenced on a Korg M-3. This composition is a favorite of mine since it's in 3/4 time.

About the meaning: In Tolkien's story, "The Lord of the Rings", Lady Galadriel tells Frodo, "You are a ring-bearer. To bear a ring is to be alone". Yet her aloneness is in complete surrender and merging with the timeless power greater than herself.
