Welcome back to my blog Femm heads. For this evening’s blog post I liked to share with you guys a very cool song that was inspired by a poem done by the famous Lord of the Rings author, J.R.R. Tolkien. The song is called, The Song of Durin and it was composed by Clamavi De Profundis. Since I listen to a lot of Celtic music and Lord of the Rings film score on YouTube I discovered the song after YouTube gave it to me as a recommendation. After listening to it and comparing it to the song, Misty Mountains, sung by the dwarves while in Bilbo’s home I concluded that Profundis sang and played the back music accordingly to match what was already canon in the Tolkien world.
The poem that Profundis turned into a song was originally in The Fellowship of the Ring. It was Gimli son of Glion who stood up and sang his ancestral song as he and his companions traveled through the Mines of Moria. Sam, Frodo’s best friend and gardener, was so moved by the song that he wanted to learn it. I’ll leave a link down below, so you guys can listen to the song and see what you think of it. Especially all you Tolkien fans out there. That’s all for this blog post ‘til next time. https://youtu.be/uxfoa23skHg
