Music is always very inspiring to help get the creativity flowing. If you'd like to hear what The Lost Heir "sounds" like, (to us) here are the main songs that we listened to many times while writing to help us get into the feeling/mood/atmosphere of the story.
THE LOST HEIR Playlist:
Waldrick & Fionnula's theme - this is the probably "the mad waltz forever playing" in Waldrick's head - the Waltz from the Masquerade suite by Khachaturian.
Gladwin's song - Who doesn't love Celtic Woman? In this song called "Dulaman," they are singing in Gaelic, and I have no idea what they're saying, but note the Celtic pipes, the tin whistle, and the bodhrain (Irish drums).
Magical theme - The group is the famous English boys' choir, Libera, the album is Angel Voices, and the song is called Lacrymosa, which is a remix of the Saint Saens "Carnival of the Animals." Gorgeous, mystical, and magical!
God Bless Us Everyone - As heard at the end of Disney's Christmas Carol movie (which you know we love!) Sung by the master Andrea Bocelli.
Water Nymphs theme - Flower Duet from Delibes' opera Lakme (You may recognize it from the first Lara Croft Tomb Raider movie!) - The video is shown here for education purposes only - someone edited together a bit of Charlotte Church singing the Flower Duet with a clip from Disney's "Fantasia" movie of 1940.
