The song in colours and scents tells about the moment of the very first meeting of Beren and Lúthien. About the time when grief and sorrow after the death of Beren's comrades were replaced by hope with eyes reflecting the light of the stars.


The music for The Meeting of Beren and Lúthien was already composed by the time I've gotten to compose it - before me, there was one Turlough O'Carolan, blind Irish baroque harpist. After I have laboriously "composed" my idea, I recorded a demo version and forwarded it to a friend of mine, a great musician (and harpist, too). She immediately sent me back a recording of her own, a beautiful rendition of the original piece (Carolan's "Captain O'Kane"), with added violin line, and assured me that the piece already existed before I've composed it... Haven't I heard the melody before? Of course I did. But alas, at least half of the song's music is mine, Beren's verses in particular. Or at least I think so.




Your sight was warm, although my arms are bare,
my soul is consumed by frost.
How I’d wish to be a buckle enclosing your cloak,
for to dwell closer to your heart… May I meet you again.
