Title: Dream Weaver in "Recollections" Can't Post

Author: Steven Halpern & Daniel Kobia

" 'Fair lady Goldberry!' said Frodo at last, feeling his heart move with a joy that he did not understand. He stood as he had at times stood enchanted by fair elven-voices; but the spell that was now laid upon him was different: less keen and lofty was the delight, but deeper and nearer to mortal heart; marvellous and yet not strange."

Chapter VII: In the House of Tom Bombadil; FOTR's

Faerie contains many things besides elves and fays and besides dwarfs, witches, trolls, giants or dragons; it holds the seas, the sun, the moon, the sky; and the earth, and all things that are one in it: tree and bird, water and stone, wine and bread, and ourselves, mortal men, when we are enchanted."
J.R.R. Tolkien

Just made it clickable! [In reply to] Can't Post

Okay, that was not what I was expecting - I thought it would be a variation on Gary Wright's "Dream Weaver"! Quite different!

But like Elvish things: this song is fair, and sad, yet it may lift up your heart.

I know this is a week of difficult remembrances for some here. Let me follow up this piece, with another that I love because of its Elvish "overtones":

Wendell Berry's "The Peace of Wild Things" set to music for choir:

Wow. [In reply to] Can't Post

Beautiful. One of those pieces that you just want to immerse yourself in, letting the words and music flow around you.

Have you sung it, in chorus?
