More moving things around

The topics from the Virtual Alexandria forum are now merged with the main forum.
This came with more moving things around. Sorry if this causes any confusion: I promise this will settle down soon!

Still, nothing should be missing. As always, please let me know if you miss anything and I'll try and fix it.


Oh yes, and HAPPY 2021! :)

An Elvish Travelling Hymn

Post by Eadhastar »

I wrote this about 5 or 6 years ago. I also wrote it in Quenya, which I have recorded me reading. I will try and attach it below for your listening pleasure. ;)

Hail! Earendil, ship of light,
guide us through this earth's black night.
Star of the last Silmaril,
sail slow through the eve's night-sea.
Lead us, Wanderer, neath the Moon;
Lead us by thy silvern shoon.
Aid us for we travel far
from Elvenhome neath white stars.
We love thee, guide for the lost,
on the seas, storm-wracked and tossed.
Shine, Earendil, ship of light.
Bring us safe though earth's black night.

It appears to be a bad encode -- there is nothing in it but square-wave noise.

Checked with Amarok, which plays just about everything.

Hmm, belay that -- something is wrong with my audio-out: just what I don't need at the moment....

I got it working -- what happened was the new Amarok came out a few days ago, and reset the volume setting to zero.

I like this hymn alot.  I have just finished a reread of the Silmarillion.  I think this would have made the third or fourth time, I have read it.  Anywho, I have now developed a greater understanding of, and appreciation of Earendil.  Thanks for sharing.

If you uploaded the same file you sent to me it should be working fine. At least it did when I played it on WMP a month ago. I adore this song and hearing you saying it in Quenya is wonderful!

I just love hearing the Eldarin tongues spoken aloud!  It just rolls off your tongue!  Hannon le, hannon le, hannon le!
