"Use your God-given gifts to serve others." 1 Peter 4: 10
Every week during singing, we learn about a different genre, artist or composer. We listen to lots of examples of music throughout the week. Click on the links below to listen to the huge range of music that we have covered this year.
On Thursday 2nd March was World Book day. Books inspire people to do all sorts of things... sometimes it even makes them write music. This month we are going to look at music which wouldn't be around if someone hadn't written a book first. Sometimes it is a quote from a book that has inspired them, sometimes it is a character or it is what happens in the plot.
Enya - Lord of the rings soundtrack
Eithne Pádraigín Ní Bhraonáin (1961), known as Enya, is an Irish singer, songwriter, and musician. She is known for her modern Celtic music. Here are two songs that she wrote for the Lord of the rings soundtrack. They are sung in English and in two fictional languages which Tolkien made up.
Led Zepplin - Ramble On
Ramble On is a song written by Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. The song was inspired by JRR Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings series and tells the story of Sam and Frodo’s journey as if it was a girl they were obsessed with rather than the infamous ring: “Twas in the darkest depths of Mordor, I met a girl so fair, but Gollum and the evil one, crept up and slipped away with her.”
Many of their other songs are inspired by Lord of the Rings (such as Stairway to Heaven) and Robert even named his dog Strider after the character Aragorn, who is also referred to by this name.
