In the Halls of Our Fathers – Ingrid Windsland

“In the Halls of Our Fathers”, or “Thorin’s Farewell” which was it’s working title, is a song I wrote shortly after Easter, and I’ve been editing and revising it ever since. Only now am I happy with how the lyrics turned out. This is actually the very first recording I have ever done of it, done in one take with no editing (which is rather rare for me, as I usually do several takes with a lot of editing before I’m happy with it), so it’s practically a live version. I guess I’m just really eager to share it with you all! ^_^

The picture is of two wonderful cosplayers I had the pleasure of meeting at HobbitCon and is taken by Felix (http://revelio.deviantart.com/). You can find the whole photo shoot here:

Lyrics

In the Halls of Our Fathers
(Thorin’s Farewell)

Lift your gaze
For someone so small
You had a bravery
That baffled us all
And in your reluctance
You found in your heart
The kindness to see through
A rough-cut facade

And the road lay before you
So frightful and new
But you joined our company
As one of a few
To share an adventure
And through the world roam
To the Halls of our Fathers
Our home

Lift you head
For all you have learned
You found your courage
When everything burned
In our darkest hour
To this ragged crew
Your heart remained loyal
And your spirit true

And the road lies behind you
The world lies ahead
Through woodland and mountain
And battle it lead
Together we stand now
Midst pillars of yore
In the Halls of our Fathers
Once more

Lift your hand
And let it clasp mine
I need your forgiveness
Before it is time
Thief I once called you
But you are my friend
And the last to embrace me
Here at the end

For my road has ended
So bid me farewell
And remember me kindly
In stories you’ll tell
And lay me to rest
When my last breath has passed
In the Halls of our Fathers
At last

Yeah, I’m sorry, but there is no way I’m not reblogging this after seeing the trailer …

The Girl in Red Crossing – Ingrid Windsland

ingridbeast:

Cosplaying Maryden Halewell (the tavern bard from Dragon Age Inquisition) makes me want to sing ALL the songs, but some of them don’t have melodies, which means I have to make melodies for them myself. 😉

This one is The Girl in Red Crossing. Hope you like it! ^_^

I composed music to yet another unsung BioWare song from Dragon Age Inquisition and performed it as Maryden Halewell! Hope you like it! 😄

In the Halls of Our Fathers – Ingrid Windsland

ingridbeast:

The sweet juleficent filmed me while I sang one of my own songs, “In the Halls of Our Fathers”, accompanied by theriza on he clarinet, at HobbitCon 3!

There’s a lot of background noise in this, but it’s entirely worth it for a dwarf playing the clarinet.
