“Go not to the Elves for counsel, for they will say both no and yes.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Rings, (“Three Is Company”)
Éowyn, Day 2
I say no and yes… I’m not a religious man… probably more spiritual …. with my environment… but I’ve been playing music by Geoffrey Gurrumul tonight… his angelic voice always gets me emotional… this touches the heart, the video itself is very moving, and has an aura spiritual togetherness, the way humans should be…….
This is just beautiful, Ivor. Thank you so much for sharing it. I wish they had churches where you could go to just sing together, like a love song to God and to each other. Wouldn’t that be so amazing? So true about togetherness. “We belong to each other.” ♥.
PS Did you see this comment by Ian Bartle on the vid?
“Didn’t quite get the Gurrumul fuss until I saw this video and music. This visual match up to the music is an absolute masterpiece and goes to a deep, deep emotional place. For me there is a profound emotional core to this music that lies outside time or literality – so there is no need for a translation as I don’t need to know right know what this means or meant to Gurrumul – though usually I’m an avid prospector for any nuggets of info on what has inspired great songs.
“At present the music suggests a lament, perhaps for a people whose spirit has been all but terminally broken through neglect – or maybe for a whole country. Yet it may also be an anthem to change – preceded by the deep and certain knowledge that the time has surely come to recognise that the need for change has never been greater.
“This music is no raging battle anthem though – rather it is the oh-so gentle yet insistent call of a visionary in whose music we must recognise a call to both personal and national healing.
“Heartfelt thanks to all who made alive this transcendent piece of art.”
Another commenter Jahmazmine said, “I could listen to this song for the rest of my days.” I can understand that. This is the third time I’m listening. It’s quite a gorgeous gem you shared with me today Ivor. Thank you again. ♥.
