Fairy with Celtic Harp

11 Sep

I believe some instruments are born with the gift to spread meditative, imaginative, and soothing music that awakens people’s most innocent and romantic moments of life.

Without question, the Celtic harp is one of these instruments, especially when Cecile Corbel gently plays it along with her peerless voice that amazingly melts into one other.

Her voice is like a lost fairy in the forest, full of sorrow but always warms your heart, sometimes a bit vacant but it’s also a key to recall the forgotten precious memories. 

In 2010, she sang a song for the movie the borrower Arrietty, it becomes one of my favorite ending themes with the best extension and highlight of Arrietty’s world. Her magic voice makes it hard to tell if I enjoy the movie most or the music itself.

Arrietty’s Song

I’m 14 years old, I’m pretty.
  I’m a teeny tiny girl, a little lady.
  I live under the kitchen floor,
  right here, not so far from you.
  Some times I feel happy, sometimes I feel blue.
  In my dreams…Oh! I wish I could
  Feel my hair blowing in the wind,
  see the sky in the summer rain.
  Pick a flower from the garden for you.
  Beyond the lane, there’s another world,
  butterflies floating in air.
  But is there someone out there for me..
  And so life goes on, day after day,
  with kick-knacks on the floor, nooks & crannies.
  I live in a tiny world..
  (live in a tiny world)
  But out there, someone waits for me.
  I wish I had someone to watch over me,
  in my dreams~ Oh! I wish I could.
  Feel my hair blowing in the wind;
  see the sky in the summer rain.
  Pick a flower from the garden for you.
  Beyond the lane, there’s another world,
  butterflies floating in air.
  But is there someone out there for me?
  Feel my hair blowing in the wind;
  see the sky in the summer rain.
  Pick a flower form the garden for you.
  Now I know there’s another world.
  Butterflies floating in the air.
  There is someone out there for me

 

Her voice was born to live in the “fairy tale” world, I mean, a place that can let people calm down, take a break from the reality and get prepared to start the new journey.
