Tai'shar Manetheren!

 Everyone likes good music and Fantasy fans have a particular fondness for it; blame/credit Tolkien for all the amazing songs he wrote and included in both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. Amazon's The Wheel of Time adaption has done something similar, creating an original song entitled Weep for Manetheren. A good song with varying renditions of it are all over YouTube, but this particular version I think deserves special attention. Why? Because it is sung in the Old Tongue, and to translate the original song, fit it to the tune, then master the pronunciation enough to sing it takes a special kind of dedication. Tai'shar Manetheren! Carai an Caldazar! Carai an Ellisande! Al Ellisande!
