BLACKMORE'S NIGHT: Locked within the Crystal Ball



Aunque se sale un poco de la temática del blog he querido poner aquí este fantástico tema de Blackmore's Night.

La 'alianza' de Ritchie Blackmore, el legendario guitarrista de los 70's y 80's ( "Deep Purple" , "Rainbow") con Candice Night data de de los 90. En 1997 producirían el primer disco de Blackmore's Night: Shadow of the Moon, proyecto musical que se sustentaría en la música medieval y renacentista europea. Desde entonces han editado siete LPs. más un recopilatorio y otro en vivo.

El tema pertenece al album: Secret Voyage del 2008, disco que sigue la línea trazada originalmente, con instrumentaciones folk, música medieval y renacentista y fusión con el exquisito sonido hard-rock de Ritchie.

I feel the waves begin to rise
Far across the ocean deep within your eyes.
Silently watching as they fall
I can see the future locked within the crystal ball..

Strike up the lightening, hear my prayer
Feel the light electric dancing through the air
Here by the ancient castle wall
Can you see the future locked within the crystal ball..

Here in the Spotlight This Moment is ours, No one can stop us we're one with The Stars..

Quiet by nature, standing tall
cold stone circles, they have seen it all
Caught like a ghost from yesterday, shadows down the hall
Are locked within the crystal ball...

Fire, water, earth and sky
Mysteries surround us, legends never die!!
They live for one moment, lost in time, I can hear them call
They're locked within the crystal ball...

I feel the waves begin to rise
Far across the ocean deep within your eyes
Silently watching as they fall
I can see the future locked within the crystal ball..


La melodía del tema está basada en: Stella splendens, Canción de peregrinos, del Llibre vermell del monasterio de Monserrat en Cataluña, s. XIV

Stella splendens in monte
Ut solis radium
Miraculis serrato,
Exaudi populum.
Concurrunt universi
Gaudentes Populi,
Divites et egeni,
Grandes et parvuli,
Ipsum ingrediuntur,
Ut cernunt oculi,
Et inde revertuntur
Graciis repleti.
