Lyrics
Ein Licht im Traum hat mich besucht,
(A light visited me in my dream)
es nahte kaum und nahm die Flucht ...
(It didn't dare to come close to me and fled away ...)
Der Blick ist tief hier eingesenkt
(Your view has been deeply touching)
den als ich schlief du mir geschenkt
(how you looked upon me when I slept)
Hell dämmert mild am Tage wach
(Bright and tender are my daydreams)
O Nachtgebild dein Glanz mir nach ...
(the glance of what I could see in the night)
Komm oft, o Stern, komm oft oft, o Stern,
(Come often, o star, come often, o star)
in meiner Ruh, Dir schließ ich gern die Augen zu.
(when I'm sleeping, I love to shut my eyes for you)
Hell dämmert mir dein Licht im Traum
(Bright is your light in my dreams)
am Tage mir nach.
(all day long)
Komm oft oft, o Stern, in meiner Ruh,
(Come often, o star, come often, o star)
Dir schließ ich gern die Augen zu.
(when I'm sleeping, I love to shut my eyes for you)

Ahh, the amazing vocalizations! Besides the pitch perfect vox, the effects and accompaniment in the backgound also work well and add impact to the piece.

Regardless...
of whether these voices are Melodyne-induced or not, this is a lovely tribute and a fine piece of work.

Forgive me, Andreas, but you've put no information about yourself on your Jam Page, so I have no idea what you're actually performing in this song... but I love it. ;)

What a choir
The intro is fantastic... And when to choir comes in.... That's so beautiful..... Good voices... Thanks for sharing...
drakonis said 3509 days ago (February 16th, 2008)
Wow!
Gorgeous singing & arrangement... and the words are beautifully touching (I do not remember my High School German well, so I appreciate you translating to English too!) Some of the synths sounded dreamy, but others sounded like "dentist drills", which would wake me up instantly... I preferred the gentler sounds with this, they fit the mood better. Stunning writing for voice, thank you for posting here on Macjams!
ttfn,

It is
a pure wonder Andreas.
Even though i am not such a big fun of those cosmic noises and extra terrestrial sounds of the young generation of nowadays. In my opinion they don't have to be there at all. But I do understand, you are looking for new music styles, new sounds etc.
It is a pure beauty Andreas and reminds me so wonderfully of those years spent in a choir. What a wonderful time...
Love it...
You really made me emotional now :)
oh God...
