  • Любимые folk- альбомы из России

    Mag 16 2012, 21:37

    Альбомы тут перечислены в произвольном порядке с небольшими комментариями.

    Внуки Святослава - Плести венками песни

    Этот альбом ближе всего к чистому народному творчеству. Именно те инструменты, которые нужны, и на гитаре там играют именно так, как надо. Но главное - вокалистка с замечательным голосом. И если я обычно предпочитаю слушать инструментальные композиции, то слушая эту группу я их пропускаю )

    Во Скорбях - Во Скорбях

    Это folk doom metal. Вообще я не слушаю doom, но это нечто уникальное и качественное. Концептуально продуманный альбом повествует о смерти батюшки-кормильца и плачах детей по этому поводу.

    СатанаКозёл - Рогатыя

    В этом folk metal альбоме самая лучшая, по моему мнению, часть - тексты. В них есть и веселье, и остроумие, и почитание природы, и ледяной холод, и издевательства над (христианскими) попами. Ну и музыка тоже на высоком уровне.

    Meldis - Отдохни, волшебник

    В этой группе определяющими являются два элемента: кельтская арфа и её оператор, а по совместительству ещё и штатный вокалист - Анастасия Паписова. Из всего списка этот альбом самый лёгкий и неизбыточный. Вот только никак не пойму смысл текстов. А ещё этот альбом сыграл важную роль в моей жизни.
  • Favourites with (pseudo-)Latin lyrics

    Dic 7 2009, 23:12

    Here is my unsorted top of favourite tracks with Latin lyrics or with 'inspired by Latin' lyrics. Majority of tracks are dark and not very cheerful, so if you like pop music, this tracks are probably not for you. Here:

    • Enae Volare and Enae Volare Mezzo by Era
      It is believed that this composition is written in the artificial language and has no meaning. On the other hand, words are chosen so that it sounds very interesting and a bit 'diabolus' ) And I really like its video.

      Inspiring.



    • Is Nomine Vacans by Corvus Corax
      This track is a bonus on Gothic 3 soundtrack CD. It uses the musical theme of the game composed by Kai Rosenkranz.
      Is nomine vacans liberarit vobis ex serbitus [x2]
      Is nomine vacans reddet vobis ars magica [x4]
      Is nomine vacans liberarit vobis ex serbitus
      Movemini Vengarderis solum locus liber mundi
      Advemini custos templorum
      Is nomine vacans liberarit vobis ex serbitus [x2]
      Movemini Vengarderis solum locus liber mundi
      Advemini custos templorum
      Majestic.

    • Pestis Cruento by Daniel Bernstein
      Song from video game Blood. The plot of this game tells the story of the cult "The Cabal". Members of this cult worship the forgotten god Tchernobog (from Russian Чернобог – The Black God). The Cabal Language is the offical language of the Cabal, known to them as the Dark Wisdom (Domus Durbentia). It is a derivative of Latin and Sanskrit and has two forms - formal and colloquial. The title of this track means "blessed (formal)" and the song sounds like monks chanting.

      Charming.



    • Pax Deorum by Enya
      Ambient song with Latin & Irish Gaelic lyrics.

      Possible translation:
      Peace of the Gods
      Heavenly father, God is with us..
      Heavenly father, God is with me
      Believe that every day has
      dawned for you as the last.
      Believe that every day has
      dawned for you as the last.)
      Mysterious.



    • Ave Satani by Jerry Goldsmith
      "Ave Satani" is the theme song to the film The Omen (1976). It was composed by Jerry Goldsmith and won him an academy award. The Omen won an Oscar for Best Score, with Ave Satani nominated for Best Song, one of the few foreign language (Latin) songs ever to be nominated.

      The title means "Hail Satan" in Latin, in opposition to "Ave Christi". In an interview, Goldsmith says that his idea was to create a kind of Satanic version of a Gregorian chant and came up with ideas while talking with the London choir-master of the orchestra that was helping him. He decided to create something like a Black Mass, inverting Latin phrases from the Latin Mass. The choir-master, according to Goldsmith, was an expert in Latin and helped him come up with phrases - instead of saying "Hail Mary", they decided on "Hail Satan", and so on.Sanguis Bibimus ("We drink the blood.")
      Corpus Edimus ("We eat the body.")
      Tolle Corpus Satani! ("Elevate the body of Satan!")
      Ave! ("Hail!")
      Ave, Ave! Versus Christus! ("Hail, Hail Anti-Christ!")
      Ave Satani! ("Hail Satan!")
      I am not a Satanist and not a Christian, so I like it. I also like its another version: GregorianAve Satani (The Omen).

      Impressing.



    • Carmina Burana by Carl Orff
      Carmina Burana is a scenic cantata composed by Carl Orff between 1935 and 1936. It is based on 24 of the poems found in the medieval collection Carmina Burana. Its full Latin title is Carmina Burana: Cantiones profanae cantoribus et choris cantandae comitantibus instrumentis atque imaginibus magicis ("Songs of Beuern: Secular songs for singers and choruses to be sung together with instruments and magic images.") Carmina Burana is part of Trionfi, the musical triptych that also includes the cantata Catulli Carmina and Trionfo di Afrodite. The best-known movement is "Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi (O Fortuna)" that opens and closes the piece.

      Grand.



    • Consign to Oblivion (A New Age Dawns, Part 3) by Epica
      This song has English lyrics and only one Latin phrase [6:47 - 6:58], but I love it very much. Oblivisci tempta quod didicisti

      Translation:
      Try to unlearn all that you've learnt
      Perplexing.




    So if you know good songs with Latin lyrics, please let me know. Let me know if you can give me lyrics of listed songs without it or if you can improve existing translations.
