    I really loved that song when it came out and all the cover versions just based on the first Hobbit trailer before the film even premiered... didn't know this version! This is phenomenal... sends chills down my spine :) Howard Shore is an underpreciated genius. Both this and LotR soundtracks are stellar. (a nice document about the LotR music)

    Bitmap, if there's one German thing I totally love then it is some of the music of Kraftwerk :) They are legends! (here's a German version of that song, it should contain a pun untranslated to English about the double meaning of radioaktivität)

    Which double meaning?

    I think the second should be an activity on the radio?

    ugh ... well ... to the same extent to which 'radioactivity' is an activity on the radio in English.

    Dunno, the band thought it was acceptable :p Anyway, I didn't want to delve into such minutia... I just thought you might know them, that's all.

    The dwarves singing this deep madrigal is partly why I picked up TLotR in college. I heard it in a theater, the Hobbit trailer naturally, and I thought, "Holy Christ. This is the essence of good fantasy." A diminutive race of subterranean beardos questing after the land & gold robbed from their fathers. Perfection.

    Interesting.



    Chevalier, mult estes guariz,
    Quant Deu a vus fait sa clamur
    Des Turs e des Amoraviz
    Ki li unt fait tels deshenors;
    Cher a tort unt cez fieuz saiziz;
    Bien en devums aveir dolur,
    Cher la fud Deu primes servi
    E reconuu pur segnuur.

    Ki ore irat od Loovis,
    Ja mar d’enfern n'avrat pouur,
    Char s’alme en iert en pareïs
    Od les angles nostre Segnor.

    Pris est Rohais, ben le savez,
    Dunt crestiens sunt esmaiez,
    Les mustiers ars e desertez:
    Deus n'i est mais sacrifiez.
    Chivalers, cher vus purpensez,
    Vus ki d'armes estes preisez;
    A celui voz cors presentez
    Ki pur vus fut en cruiz drecez.

    Ki ore irat od Loovis...

    Pernez essample a Lodevis,
    Ki plus ad que vus nen avez:
    Riches reis est e poesteïz,
    Sur tuz altres est curunez:
    Deguerpit ad e vair e gris,
    Chastels e viles e citez:
    Il est turnez a icelui
    Ki pur nus fut en croiz penez.

    Ki ore irat od Loovis...

    Deus livrat sun cors a Judeus
    Pur metre nus fors de prisun;
    Plaies li firent en cinc lieus,
    Que mort suffrit e passïun.
    Or vus mande que Chaneleus
    E la gent Sanguin le felun,
    Mult li unt fait des vilains jeus:
    Or lur rendez lur guerredum!

    Ki ore irat od Loovis...

    Char le fiz Deu al Creatur
    Ad Rohais estre ad un jorn mis:
    La serunt salf li pecceur
    Ki bien ferrunt pur s'amur
    Irunt en cel besoin servir
    Pur la vengance Deu furnir.

    Ki ore irat od Loovis...

    Alurn conquere Moïsès,
    Ki gist el munt de Sinaï;
    A Saragins nel laisum mais,
    Ne la verge duot il partid
    La Roge mer tut ad uo fais,
    Quant le grant pople le seguit;
    E Pharaon revint après:
    E li suon furent perit.

    Ki ore irat od Loovis...

    Just listened to the whole track now. I like it. It's a very catchy tune.

    Also, interesting how many vaguely Latinate (but not quite correct for Latin) verb forms there are. It's like looking at something halfway between Latin and Modern French, which I suppose is just about right, lol.

    Incidentally: how intuitively comprehensible is this text for you ( Pacifica ) as a Modern French native speaker? Is it like reading Shakespeare would be for us, or maybe Chaucer, or is it even weirder than that?
