Sunday morning music

I had a very long day yesterday, driving down to the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex with my wife to meet new friends.  We had a great time, but arrived home quite late, thanks to Saturday evening traffic down south.  (Living up here in north Texas, we sometimes lose sight of how nice it is to live in communities small enough that rush hour lasts twenty minutes or so, and never stops moving!)

That didn't leave me much time to think about this morning's post.  As a placeholder, and because I found myself listening to it a lot this week (food for inspiration while writing a particular scene), here's Clamavi de Profundis, a musical family group, with their version of the Lament for the Rohirrim from the film adaptation of J. R. R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings".

Lovely music, and great food for thought for writers.

Hey Peter;

Hearing the speech and the resulting charge of the Rohirrins at Mithras was stirring for the blood lemme tell you

Gladiator themes done by some amazing voices and using many archaic instruments.

6 minutes of sounds to lift the soul, I often watch it and listen to it when freeing a new sword from its transport package. Perfect for a sharpening session too.

In a pessimistic moment, one could take this as a require for the West.
