Notes: From the soundtrack of the film "1492: Conquest of Paradise" (Ridley Scott, 1992). The lyrics are in no actual language, a pseudo Latin (wordpainting). Even if Vangelis forgot to mention, the melody is based on "la Folia", fertility dance originating in the late 15th century. To render the choir my voice is in 3 tracks: two low voices and the third is one octave higher.
Just a 'little' word: WONDEERFUL!!!!!

Sussyno all'ennesima potenza!!!
Sussy, qui sussurri assaje!

Ma boh, questa m'ha proprio stupito
quanto sia diventata 'popolare', sia per
il fatto che non pensavo fosse così
noto il brano sia soprattutto perché
non me lo merito proprio :) se
ascoltassi ciascuna delle 3 tracce
vocali da sola ti metteresti le mani fra
i capelli :D

As the saying goes, "Meglio tardi che
"Better late than never."
And after all, I'm only a little more
than one year late, so no big deal.

Ahh, it's quite professional-sounding!

(That must be why it's high on the list
of Midomis' all-time greatest hits.)
Three vocal tracks? (!)
Well done, Hera!
Posted by HowardH on 03/26/2009.
Hi Howard! I remember I was more
interested in this music itself rather
than "singing a song" :) so I spent more
time changing sounds, instruments,
changing all the Synths into some
acoustic instrument like violin, strings
etc.. while voice tracks where recorded
like "bòna la prima" :D (='first take
is the good one')
Posted by Heracleum on 03/29/2009.
Really, Hera?
Just one take on the vocals?
That shows us what knowing the music
well can do for us!

Do you suppose there is some kind of
lesson in there for us? After all,
neither of us is ever gonna be a great
singer, so we should sing songs we love,
relax, and do it in one take. (It
probably won't be any better on the
second take!! Hahaha.)

All kidding aside: Well done.
Posted by HowardH on 03/30/2009.
Eheh yes but wait, quick'n'dirty
recorded tracks are OK if you want to
render a "choir".. all the
mistakes/inaccuracy creates a nice
effect inside a choir.. but for a
lead-vocals track if I leave the very
first take I could commit a crime
against audience's ears :)
Posted by Heracleum on 04/01/2009.
Ach! Leave it to you, Hera, to come up
with a technically sound reason why I
should try to sing better! Haha.
Posted by HowardH on 04/01/2009.
Beautiful music, but where are you ?
Maybe the music was overhearsing the
voices a little bit too much.. ? Or
maybe you wanted it to be so ? But it
stays a lovely song...
Posted by misspronce on 11/14/2008.
Uhm.. maybe you're listening through
speakers? (low frequencies usualy are
cut) because i'm listening now with
headphones and I hear "the heracleumS"
:D even louder than I planned to eheh
btw I expected this one to stay in a
corner for years, no visitors, and I'm
so surprised it has usually the highest
score (?) I didn't imagine this song to
be so popular... and probably listeners
didn't expect to find a rendition of
this one on midomi :D
Posted by Heracleum on 11/14/2008.
WOWOWOW!!! Fabulousssss, Heracleum,
really great idea to record Vangelis,
sounding wonderful! Thanks a lot for
sharing this too, my friend! :)))
PS.: I'd like you to know that the
pieces of info you usually post on the
recordings' notes are truly useful and
appreciated, thanks!

ecco, se c'ho un brutto attacco di
pigrizia (come in queste settimane)

registratore di midomi, proprio nulla :D

capolavoro 5 stelle vangelis inimitabile
Posted by ricca on 04/30/2008.
Mhh I don't know, for sure Vangelis
wrote the entire soundtrack expressly
for the movie 1942.. I quickly checked
"the Last of the Mohicans" soundtrack
titles but I don't find this one, maybe
used in some trailer?
Thanks for listening =)

favs and it's amazing what you did with
this:) i was quite surprised when i saw
that you have this recorded:)
Posted by Biscuit on 02/14/2008.
I'm surprised as well to see a comment
on this song :D I love this CD, even if
my favourite track is actually "28th
Parallel" which -as you know- is the
same melody of this one but different
intro and piano. Thank you!
